Chocolate Hazelnut Hemp Milk Sundae.
My Chocolate Hazelnut Hemp Milk Sundae is made from homemade hemp milk, hemp hearts, hazelnut butter and dark chocolate.
Hemp Seeds: Why They are Good for You
Hemp seeds are rich in protein – twice as much protein as is in flax or chia seeds – and they are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and contain powerful anti-inflammatory properties that help metabolize fat and repair muscles, especially after exercise.
You can toss hemp hearts on a smoothie, cereal or nicecream, or you can make a creamy nutritious hemp milk to use in coffee, cereals and in desserts, as I did here.
Homemade plant milks are fairly easy to make, including almond, cashew and more, but I found hemp milk particularly easy.
That’s because, unlike nut milks, you don’t need to pre-soak hemp seeds.
Just blend them out of the package for a few minutes with water in a high-powered blender and you have hemp milk!
You don’t really need to strain your hemp milk, but you can if you want a thinner version. See my exact recipe below, as well for the sundae!
Chocolate Hazelnut Hemp Seed Sundae
Creamy Hemp Base
- 2 cups hemp milk Either bought or homemade
- 1/4 cup plant yogurt
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 pinch of salt
Add Secret Surprise to Jar Bottom
- 2 tbsp chocolate hazelnut butter
Whipped Hemp Cream
Homemade Hemp Milk
- 2 cups hemp hearts
- 3 cups water
- 1 tsp salt
Make the Chocolate Coating
- Melt the chocolate bar in a bowl sitting on a pot of boiling water or at 60-seconds in a microwave. Coat the inside of two cups with the melted chocolate.
Add a Surprise
- At the bottom of each cup, dollop some hazelnut butter at the bottom.
Make the Hemp Base
In a high speed blender, whip up hemp milk, yogurt, vanilla and salt to make the hemp milk creamy base for the sundae. Pour it in the cup.
Make Whipped Hemp Cream
The night before, refrigerate the can of full-fat coconut milk.
On cooking day, scoop out the harden portion and save the coconut milk for other recipes.
In a high speed blender, whip up the solid coconut cream with all other ingredients.
Top the sundae along with more hemp hearts and crushed hazelnuts. You could probably add some additional chocolate and hazelnut butter if you want to get really fancy.
- Serve chilled and enjoy!
Want to Make Homemade Hemp Milk?
- I found hemp milk in the boxed milk area of Wholefoods, but you can also make it.
To do so, blend up 2 cup hemp hearts with 3 cups water and a pinch of salt.
- For full nutritional benefit, drink it thick as is.
If you want a thinner more-milk-like liquid texture, strain it through a small strainer to remove pulp.
- Keeps in refrigerator for 3 days.
- Notice you don't have to soak the seeds prior as you do with almond and cashew milk recipes - that was a big time-saver for me!
