OK, so you might have read about my failed attempts to make milk from rice...look here. My subsequent attempts were better, but either turned out too thin or too thick.
Anyway...I have moved on to hemp now and with much better results. It's not as illegal as it sounds. Hemp seeds are readily available in many health stores. I got a small pack for 1 euro and 50 cent ... but you don't need much. The small bag was enough to to make 4 liters of milk.
And the best thing?Everyone loves it. It tastes pretty much like cows milk.
Actually that's not the best thing, the best thing is that naturally contains omega oils and protein.
Oh, and it's really easy to make!
SoyMilkQuick Milk making machine
You can probably do this without the milk making machine, but I don't have one, so I can't say.
Measure out a cup of hemp seeds using the supplied measuring cup (which is about the size of 1/2 an American cup )
Soak in 4 measuring cups of water
Soak the hemp seeds for 8 hours
Put them in the SoyMilkQuick machine
When the cycle finished (after about 15 minutes) add a teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon of honey.
