I use The Farm cookbook's recipe for soy milk which is close enough to this classic (c) 1977 Mother Earth News recipe, just leave out any steps from this that look unnecessary and/or that you're too lazy to bother with:

and if I want something fancy with nuts or seeds, I just toss them in the blender, drink the seed or nut milk, and either eat the "dregs" at the bottom without being gross about it or save it to add nutrition to baked goods or casseroles or whatever.

Not that I'd ever turn down Vitasoy or Hemp Dream at a public gathering or a friend's house or anything, it's just not the way I buy food.

Of all the ones I've tried, hemp was the best, but it's been so long since I've had it I don't even remember the brand. It was super rich and creamy, and went great with cereal which was primarily what I was using it for.

Hemp milk is actually legal everywhere in your country as is, quite recently, CBD oil. :)

Hemp milk is still rather pricey but besides being delicious it has a lot more food value than the usual suspects such as rice milk, soy milk, almond milk, etc.

I'd recommend it as more of a "special occasion treat" or craving soother for a new vegan than a daily staple. Unless, of course, food is what makes your boat float and that's how you like to spend your money.

For me it's either coconut milk or cashew milk. They coconut one has a subtle coconut flavor that doesn't suit everything but when it does it's amazing.

You might like Cashew milk.

its a fair bit thicker than most soy and nut milks I've tried - with the note I am allergic to coconut and haven't ever tried it in milk form - and in food or coffee feels a bit more like dairy milk.
