As you know, I have been trying out different types of ingredients to see what’s out there. This week when I was at Whole Foods I saw this Hemp Bliss drink.
It was in the same section as almond milk, rice milk, and coconut milk. There was also an original, chocolate, and unsweetened hemp drink. But I wanted some sweetness so I opted for the vanilla.
At first I was slightly skeptical of what this could taste like. I am not the biggest fan of rice milk, so I hoped it wasn’t like that and was more like almond or coconut milk.
To give the beverage a proper taste test, I ate it with cereal, used it in my coffee, and drank it as is.
It was delicious with cereal, and had a very similar consistency to cows milk. I personally liked the hemp milk better for cereal then the coconut milk. But, I was not a fan of the hemp milk in my coffee. I thought it would taste delicious, and that I wouldn’t need to add any extra sugar which was going to be a major bonus. But the coffee seemed to slightly change the flavor of the milk, and the milk somehow made the coffee taste much more bitter then I anticipated.
Over all, it tastes delicious. The vanilla hemp milk was not overly sweet, and it wasn’t a heavy drink. I would be more likely to add this into my diet then something like soy milk, or rice milk. It would be a tough competition between this a coconut milk, but this one might win in my book.
If you are wondering about the nutrition facts…do not fear! Hemp milk is good for you! Well…relatively good for you. I imagine the original or unsweetened variety would be slightly healthier then the vanilla flavor. But this is way better for you then a soda!
