If you are looking for a thicker, nuttier tasting dairy alternative, look to hemp milk. Hemp seeds are high in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. Although the milk is made from hemp, the seeds of the edible part of the same plant used to make marijuana, it lacks the THC that makes marijuana a recreational and psychoactive drug. In addition to the healthy fats, hemp milk provides 10 essential amino acids, making it a vegetarian source of protein (2g per cup), however not as much as soy milk.

Selection Process

Hemp milk can be found in health food stores, but is becoming more popular in main stream grocers as well. It comes in vanilla, plain and chocolate flavors. Look for unsweetened if possible and types that are fortified with B12, vitamin D, calcium.
