Nourish your inner child with this creamy, fruity strawberry hemp milk!

As much as you all love my easy 3 minute hemp milk (it’s one of my top posts on Tiktok!) I think you are going to absolutely flip for this delicious strawberry hemp milk, because it’s bursting with real strawberry flavour and makes it SO easy to get more omega 3 fatty acids into your day.

As a dietitian, I’m always looking for easy, set-it-and-forget-it ways of getting more nutrition into my day and this strawberry hemp milk really delivers: each 1 cup serving contains 6.5 grams of plant-based protein and 2 milligrams of vegan iron from hemp hearts, plus plenty of vitamin C and tummy-friendly fibre from the strawberries! 

Yep, this plant-based recipe is something almost anyone can enjoy, as it’s gluten free, allergen-friendly and even low FODMAP for all my IBS folks enjoying a low FODMAP diet right now.

As a kid, one of my favourite treats was stirring those strawberry or chocolate syrups into my milk after school so this strawberry hemp milk feels really nostalgic for me and yes, your kids will actually love it! 

Anyone who has been hanging out here long enough knows that my youngest always gives me the “is this healthy?” side eye when I ask her to try a new creation but she absolutely gulped this one up! Yes, she likes it a bit sweeter – I love that you get to control the sweetness yourself – and it works well with fresh or frozen strawberries so you can enjoy this yummy treat all year long!

I love a glass of this luscious vegan strawberry milk on its own, but it also makes a delicious base for smoothies, overnight oats or chia puddings. I love finding new ways to enjoying hemp milk…this recipe was inspired by blackberry vanilla hemp milk I created for Good For Your Gut!

Make it easy, and make it DELICIOUS: this creamy, flavourful strawberry hemp milk is made with just 4 ingredients!!

just 4 ingredients – strawberries hemp hearts, maple syrup and vanilla – plus water and salt!

Strawberries: ripe seasonal berries taste incredible in this recipe but you can absolutely use frozen strawberries! Just be sure to thaw them first and maybe add a bit of extra maple syrup.

Hemp hearts: hulled hemp seeds, or hemp hearts, make such a delicious and nutrient dense vegan milk, packed with minerals like iron, magnesium and zinc plus omega 3 fatty acids.

Maple syrup: I love maple syrup as it adds something extra to the flavour but you could absolutely substitute cane sugar or your favourite sweetener here.

Vanilla: vanilla makes everything taste a bit more like dessert…so don’t skip it! I also like a tiny pinch of salt here for extra flavour.

FAQ: are strawberries low FODMAP?

As a gut health dietitian, I always hold my breath when new FODMAP updates come out! Strawberries used to be an ‘eat freely’ food, but new data from MONASH university has found that strawberries do have some FODMAP.

So now the low FODMAP serving of strawberries is 5 medium berries, or 65g. Remember, if you’re currently following a low FODMAP diet, I highly recommend you grab the low FODMAP app so you can stay up to date with changes!
