Living Harvest Hempmilk

When I went home for Christmas, I espied some hempmilk in my friend's fridge and started in with the mockery. "Hempmilk?! You hippie." Little did I know that this stuff is delicious, especially with cereal and oatmeal projects, and nutritious. Check out these nutritional facts, from the Living Harvest site:

Serving Size: 1 cup (240 mL)
Calories: 130     Calories from Fat: 35
Total Fat: 4g
Total Carbohydrates: 20g
Protein: 4g

Vitamin A: 10%       Magnesium: 20%
Calcium: 40%          Iron: 10%
Thiamin: 8%            Niacin: 6%
Vitamin D: 20%       Vitamin E: 15%
Vitamin B12: 20%   Phosphorus: 40%
Riboflavin: 25%       Folic Acid: 4%

And, 800 mg of Omega-3 and 2600 mg of Omega-6, to boot!

And it really is good, with a sort of nutty richness. So often milk substitutes are sort of thin and sad, but this is not. It is also available at Jewel, so it's very easy to find.
