I’ve long heard of hemp milk but haven’t had a chance to try it since there aren’t a lot of places near here for things that are considered more out of the ordinary. But on a recent trip to The Railway Market in Easton, MD I found some hemp milk ice cream.
Now, I’ll admit to planning on eating the container on the hour long ride home. Yes. I have done it before. But the top of my ice cream was a little freezer burned and I thought the ice cream was only so-so. Not bad, but I couldn’t tell if it was a slightly odd flavor from the fact that it was hemp milk or the fact that it was freezer burned. So I only had a bit on the way home.
I threw the container in the freezer and thought about what it might be able to become.
Then inspiration struck: A chocolate banana milkshake!
Into the blender went the rest of the hemp milk ice cream, a banana broken up into chunks, and some soy milk. (I add the soy milk a little at a time to get the correct consistency.)
I added a little ricewhip on top; That was a splurge at the health food store. I was a whipped cream a-holic and I’ve missed it. On its own I didn’t like the ricewhip, but on top of the shake it was good.
