I am unfamiliar with hemp except as a material substance and want to know what hemp milk, hemp seed and hemp powder taste like. Also, is there anything gross about the texture? Thanks for any input!

Well, hemp I am not sure how to describe it, but texture wise Hemp "milk" is thicker than soy or almond.

I've only ever tried hemp seeds. It was a while ago so I can't remember exactly what they tasted like, but I remember I used to eat them a lot as snacks so they can't have been awful.

I've never had hemp milk, but I read somewhere that it tasted the closest to cow's milk. I keep meaning to try it, but I'm so into all the other kinds of "milk" that I haven't gotten around to it yet.

I've only tried hemp milk and I did not like it at all. Certainly wasn't worth what it costs. Soy milk and rice milk are cheaper and tastier, imo.

I just bought vanilla hemp milk yesterday and really don't care for it. It seems a bit watery but maybe it's just the brand I bought? It is called Hemp Dream. I have tried hemp, soy, rice and almond milk and so far almond milk is my very favorite with soy coming in second. The brand I buy is Almond Breeze.

I did not care for hemp milk. It had kind of a funky taste to me. I'd rather use soy or rice or nut milk.

I deffinetly wanna try hemp products but my parents don't want me to because they think that because they come from cannabis it must be barely legal and partially dangerous because it's related to "marijuana". I've shown them all kinds of evidence to prove that hemp products are okay but they still won't listen.

This reminds me I have some plain and vanilla hemp milk in my pantry waiting to be tried out.



I'm nervous. I always am when it comes to milk substitutes for some reason. I'll put damn near any meat replacement/seitan/tofu in my mouth without a second thought, but not milks.



I'll let you guys know what I think once I try them out. I'm thinking I might try the vanilla first. Although maybe I should try the unflavored since it'll actually let me know what hemp milk tastes like. The thing is I don't drink milk (dairy or otherwise) just to drink it. I cook with it or eat it on cereal, so I'm not sure what I'm going to use the whole carton for once I open it.

Hemp milk is great. At least Living Harvest brand is. Hemp Dream I haven't had and Manitoba whatever is just completely gross.

Living Harvest is what I have in the pantry. I picked it since it got better reviews than Hemp Dream and the others. I'm still working my way through the last of my carton of Silk and then I'm giving the hemp a shot.
