Golden hemp milk - a simple vegan recipe
What is golden milk?
Golden milk is a real immune booster which is perfect for the cold winter months- especially in the current situation! It is anti-inflammatory, a great source of long lasting energy and, most importantly, it tastes great. Turmeric or rather the curcumin which it contains gives the drink a beautiful golden yellow color. Vegan turmeric latte is often prepared with plant milk.
We have a recipe with hulled hemp seeds which are naturally sweet, vegan, gluten and lacto-free.
RECIPE FOR GOLDEN HEMP-MILK
300 ml Water
30 g Hulled hemp seeds
1 Pinch of black pepper
Put the water, hemp seeds, dates, turmeric, ginger and pepper into a mixer and blend for about 2-3 minutes. Through the process of mixing the golden hemp-milk will become lukewarm and can therefore be drunk raw.
- Instead of fresh turmeric you can used the powdered form. Likewise, powdered ginger works well.
- Cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and cardamon also work well with this recipe.
- If you'd rather enjoy this beverage warm, feel free to heat it up in a pan for a few minutes or heat the water up before blending it with the other ingredients.
THREE BENEFITS OF TURMERIC LATTE
✔️ Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and its bitterness is actually great for your liver. Combined with black pepper and the healthy fats from the hemp seeds, its nutritional benefits are enhanced since your body can absorb them better in this ratio.
✔️ Hemp seeds contain protein, anti-inflammatory minerals, zinc, magnesium, iron, multiple vitamins (particularly B & E) and have a perfect omega-3 to omega-6 balance.
✔️ Ginger is the ultimate immune booster. It helps to prevent common colds, protects your body from viral infections, contains vitamin C and encourages good circulation.
