Off Dairy? Get Into Some Hempmilk, Man...

Jim Leff | Mar 14, 200704:16 PM     18

I sit here with a glass of Living Harvest Hempmilk in my hand. In my other hand is a macrame I'm working on, and a single tear trails down my cheek as I listen to the dulcet tones of Joan Baez on my hi-fi set.

Well, none of that's true but the hempmilk.

Don't laugh. Or, I should say, go ahead and laugh. It's hempy delicious. Imagine soy milk without the soy. It's somewhat substantial (i.e. milky rather than watery) but without that "I'm sucking on a thousand soybeans" problem. You're chugging hemp, man, not soy. Or, I should say, "a creamy non-dairy beverage made from whole hemp nuts". I got it at Whole Foods for $3.69/quart.

It's maybe 15% sweeter (from brown rice syrup, of course) than it really needs to be, and I am, alas, not getting off on it, psychoactively. But the flavor is more pleasant and neutral than soymilk, it'd work with cereal, it's a balanced source of omega 3 & 6, and a quick glance at the nutrition statment gives the impression that this is better than the relatively empty nutrition of soy milk.

So go ahead and laugh. There's gonna be a revolution.
