Hemp Milk vs Other Milk & How to make it.

Hemp Milk

Hemp Milk vs Other Milk & How to make it.

There’s no doubt about it – plant-based milks are on the rise, with many consumers making the move from dairy due to its negative impact on the environment and health. But even once you’ve entered the dairy-free world there’s still a bunch of information to sift through. Is it oat milk that has the most protein? Which type is the most sustainable? And will my children be able to get enough calcium?

Naturally, we think hemp milk has a number of benefits that others don’t. For starters, it’s the only dairy alternative to provide a source of omega-3. It’s the most environmentally friendly option, requiring no pesticides and little water to grow. And it won’t split in hot drinks like you might have noticed others do. We’ve broken down some key points of comparison for you below.



  • Low in saturated fats and free from cholesterol
  • High in polyunsaturated fats which promote a healthy heart and normal brain function. In fact, just one glass of hemp milk provides 50% of your recommended daily allowance of omega-3
  • Hemp’s sustainability credentials are enviable – the plant grows naturally without the use of herbicides or pesticides and with very little water. It breathes in 4x more CO2 than trees, and nothing is wasted when producing food and drink from hemp.
  • Hemp seeds taste a bit like a cross between sunflower seeds and pine nuts, which means that our hemp milk has delicious light and ‘nutty’ flavour.
  • Doesn’t split in hot drinks
  • Hemp milk is naturally allergen free i.e. free of soy, lactose and gluten, making it a good option for people who need or want to avoid these components



  • A glass of hemp milk contains approx 4g of protein which is lower than dairy, soya or oat milk



  • A high protein content (8.25g per serving) that rivals that of cow’s milk (8.5g per serving)
  • Very low in saturated fat
  • A good source of vitamin A and vitamin B-12 and can be fortified to be a good source of calcium and vitamin D


  • Soya production is generally heavily processed and GM
  • There are well-documented links between soya bean production and deforestation
  • Soy milk is often an acquired taste
  • Not suitable for people with soya intolerance (around 5% of the UK population)



  • No saturated fat or cholesterol
  • High in carbohydrates, which makes a great energising option
  • A good source of B vitamins and magnesium.
  • It can be fortified to be a good source of calcium, vitamin A, and vitamin D.
  • Has a pleasantly sweet flavour


  • Negligible protein content (0.25g per serving)
  • High in sugar
  • Rice is a high pesticide crop



  • No saturated fat or cholesterol
  • It can be fortified to be a good source of calcium, vitamin A, and vitamin D
  • A good source of fibre
  • A pleasant ‘oaty’ taste


  • A relatively low protein content
  • Naturally high in sugar
  • Not suitable for people with a gluten intolerance or coeliacs



  • Low in calories and free from saturated fat and cholesterol
  • A good source of vitamin A and can be fortified to be a good source of calcium and vitamin D


  • Very little protein
  • It takes 1.1 gallons of water to produce a single almond, which is problematic for areas of almond production that are also at risk of drought (e.g. California)
  • Unsuitable for those with nut allergies
  • Doesn’t sit very well in a hot drinks



  • Packed with healthy fats
  • Can help boost your metabolism and fat-burning ability
  • It can be fortified to be a good source of calcium, vitamin A, and vitamin D


  • High in saturated fat
  • It’s not a good source of protein
  • Quite a thick texture which many people find more suitable to cooking/baking than drinking

How to Make Your Own Hemp Milk

It’s incredibly easy to make your own hemp milk.

By doing so, you can choose your ingredients and avoid unnecessary additives or thickeners that are otherwise found in many commercial varieties.


To make your own hemp milk, combine 1/2 to 1 cup (68–136 grams) of Noigra Hemp Hearts with 3–4 cups (710–946 ml) of water in a high-speed blender and blend for one minute or until smooth.

For additional flavor or sweetness, you can add sea salt, vanilla extract, maple syrup, dates or honey to taste.

You can strain your hemp milk using a cheesecloth, nut milk bag or very thin towel for a smoother result. Store hemp milk in a glass jar in your refrigerator for up to five days.


Yes its that easy! Go ahead and give it a try.
