Hemp Milk? Are you sure it's legal?

I hadn't even heard of Hemp Milk until I ran across a blog post at Cooking for Mara. I was still reeling after the allergy results came back and her blog really helped me out. It's amazing what you end up learning when the opportunity arises.

Hemp Milk is a terrific milk alternative; a balanced source of Omega 3 & 6, comes is 3 flavors (Chocolate, Vanilla, Original) and packs a real nutritional punch. I really sat up and took notice when I realized that it had 4x times the protein as Rice Milk.

But, careful! The extra fiber and all the Omegas can make Shea's #2 a little, shall we say, loose. Great if constipation is an issue. We cut the Chocolate with a little Rice Milk for a morning hot chocolate.
