In honor of Non-Dairy Month, we’re dedicating blog space to all our non-dairy beverages. We have an impressive roster on our all-star team. Here’s the first heavy hitter.
Hemp Non-Dairy Beverages
Made from the hemp seed, our hemp beverages are creamy with a sweet, nutty flavor. We call it a “nutritional dynamo” because hemp is a great source of plant-based nutrition. In fact, an eight-ounce serving of our hemp non-dairy beverage is rich with amino acids, 3 grams of protein, omega 3 and 6, calcium and vitamins. Talk about a powerhouse!
Our Hemp is naturally sweetened with brown rice for a flavor that’s great by the glass, over cereal, in smoothies or coffee. We make several flavors including Hemp Original, Vanilla or Chocolate. Hemp is the perfect non-dairy beverage to use in baking because it acts the most like traditional dairy, making pancakes or cakes light and fluffy.
If you prefer your non-dairy beverages unsweetened, you’re in luck. Our Unsweetened Original and Unsweetened Vanilla work well in baking, too. Unsweetened Hemp beverages are also great as a smoothie base, giving healthy green smoothies an extra boost of nutrition.
We sing the praises of Hemp all year, but since this week is Hemp History week, we can’t help but give it extra props. Because the Hemp seed requires little to no fertilization, it returns 60-70% of the nutrients it requires to grow, right back into the soil. That means it’s quite the sustainable dynamo as well.
All of our Hemp varieties are Non GMO Project Certified, soy and gluten free. Try ‘em all and let us know which one is your favorite!
