Hemp Milk Made Easy

If you ever run out of nut milk or organic milk and don't have time to soak the almonds, fret not for those hemp seeds in your freezer/fridge can come to the rescue.  It takes less than a minute to prepare fresh, purely delicious homemade hemp milk.

1 cup hemp seeds
3 cups filtered water
2 medjool dates (pitted) - optional
pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla extract

Put all the ingredients in a powerful blender (I use a Vitamix) and let it run for 45 seconds.  Skip the dates and salt if you are watching your sugar or sodium in take.  If you want it sweeter, add more dates or some coconut/palm sugar.  Pour into a glass bottle and store in the refrigerator.  For a creamier, thicker consistency, add less water. Consume within 2 days.  To prepare chocolate hemp milk, add 2 tablespoons of raw cacao.  Enjoy!

Tip:  Add hemp seeds to your list of must have "pantry" items. Click here to find out more about the benefits of  hemp seeds



  1. Wow, thanks for the hemp milk recipe. I followed that link for the hemp seed information and was glad to see that there is virtually no chance of failing a drug test after consuming Nutriva hemp products. Who would have thought???
    I am going to try the hemp milk recipe and will tell you how it goes! Thanks!

    1. Yes, it's a drug-free recipe! Look forward to hearing how it turns out.

Our Lady of Good Health, Vailankanni

Attendees of the Healing Retreat for Caregivers at St. Emeric's Church in Manhattan today were truly blessed with powerful talks and healing by Father Halbing and the beautiful presence of Chad Gatchalian's Holy Statue of Our Lady of Good Health, Vailankanni.  Chad has got this Holy Statute all the way from India.  She joyfully shares Our Lady, also known as the "Lourdes of the East," with congregations at various places of worship throughout the country.

Apparitions of Our Lady of Vailankanni ("Virgin of Velai") first occurred in the 16th Century.  To read more about the interesting history, click here.  For more information on the Basilica for your next trip to India, please visit

The New Kick in My Block

Did you know that this is the original Sriracha? Mrs. Chakkapak created it in her kitchen in Si Racha, Thailand, for her family and friends. See article from Bon Appetit by Andrea Nguyen.

I came across this chopstick-licking sauce, which is hot, yet slightly sweet, during my trek to the Thai Grocery Store. I prefer it to the sweet chili sauce with loads of pepper seeds. Sriraja has the right kick! What I especially appreciate is that it is free of preservatives and artificial coloring and has no msg!  Can't wait to dig in to my bowl of noodles!

Bon app├ętit!


Can Can Night

Do you struggle with preparing a meal at home on Friday evenings? My legs could barely carry me home tonight - I had done a lot of running around this week and running up and down the long subway escalators. I was kaput!

Did I forget my vitamins??

I ran out of my go-to-comfort food.  Brown rice tortillas and Daiya cheese are my butter and toast. Trader Joe's hasn't had any brown rice tortillas recently - all the snow storms we have been having - people have been grabbing them before I reach there!

After eating a few corn tortilla chips, dried coconut chips, I knew I had to make something substantial 'cause I wasn't going to survive on that or rice crackers and kimchi sauce!

Enter the can can dance! I kept eyeing the can of kidney beans while my mouth salivated. "Yes, I want that!" "Nah! Who's going to chop garlic, tomatoes, etc.?" I debated with myself - I'm too tired.

I gave in - made the kidney beans and have enough energy to write this …
