Tempt Hemp

A trip to the supermarket seems to find new milk alternative products each and every time. This week brought two.

First up is Tempt from Living Harvest.

Tempt™ Hempmilk is a delicious non-dairy beverage made from hemp seeds - one of nature's most perfect, planet-friendly foods. Perfect for your morning cereal or coffee, for cooking and baking, or to put the 'smooth' in your favorite fruit smoothie.

Hemp contains no known allergens

It comes in five flavors: Chocolate; Original, Unsweetened Original; Vanilla; and Unsweetened Original.

And now there is also Tempt Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert.

It also comes in five flavors: Chocolate Fudge; Coconut Lime; Coffee Biscotti; Mint Chip; and Vanilla Bean.

Much more information about hemp and the Tempt products at its FAQ page.
Hemp seeds are the edible part of the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa L). They are a tiny, round seed, similar in size to a sesame seed. They have a light, pleasant flavor and taste similar to toasted pine nuts. Hemp seeds can be pressed for oil, milled into a protein powder, roasted or shelled and made into Hempmilk. Hemp seeds have been cultivated as a food for centuries in China, and many countries in Europe and Africa. All the hemp grown for Living Harvest products come from Canada. "
