How to Easily Make a Raw Vegan Milk Your Family Will Love

by Kristen Suzanne in hemp recipes, hemp seeds, vegan

Pili Hemp Nut Milk – I love you.

How did I make that delicious looking, creamy, raw vegan nut milk? I’ll tell ya! It’s Pili Hemp Nut Milk and my new go-to for nut milk. It’s fantastic for many reasons:

  • Pili nuts, hemp seeds, and salt

    Creamy! The pili nuts… They damn near melt in your mouth when you eat them on their own. Heck, blend them and wowza.

  • Easy! This is because no soaking (or straining) required! Hemp seeds and pili nuts are naturally soft and blend easily. What a time saver. And when it comes to hemp seeds, stock up. I operate under the philosophy of “go big or go home” and I buy in bulk. They are versatile and soooo healthy.
  • Delightful Flavor! Pili nuts have a fairly neutral flavor which is great for plant strong milks, raw vegan cheeses, dips, and even raw vegan cheesecakes! (They are amazing in cheesecakes for both flavor and texture because they firm up when cold – I digress though. This is a nut milk post after all.) Hemp seeds, on the other hand, can be a little strong in flavor, but they’re huge on nutrition (essential fatty acids and a complete protein), so I try to continuously have them in my life. By blending the softly flavored pili nuts with the extra nutritious hemp seeds, you get a mild raw vegan nut milk that is perfect for use in any situation needing milk. I will say, though, that pili nuts rightly boast some excellent nutrition. They’re extremely high in their oil content (great as a beautifying food, as well as high amounts vitamin E and magnesium).

    Pili Nuts. Not usually inexpensive, so I stock up when they’re on sale.
