Sophia Roe is back with an incredibly delicious and simple hemp mylk recipe, featuring the founders of CAP Beauty and their Berry Coconut Butter…

Today, Sophia talks with Kerrilynn and Cindy, the power duo behind CAP Beauty, a New York-based company created “to spread the power of naturals to as many people as possible.” In 2015, the two opened their first store and spa in the city’s West Village and, today, it — as well as a second location in Los Angeles — has become a mecca for people looking to attain their “highest state of health.”
CAP is no stranger to Sophia, as it ranks on her list of favorite NYC destinations. Says Sophia, “As I began working on this recipe, I knew I wanted to use one of CAP’s coconut butters (which also happens to be their best-selling product!), ideally their berry flavor because you almost never find berry mylks in stores!” Though Sophia chose to use strawberries in this recipe, feel free to use whatever berry you like best. Sophia’s tips: drink this straight, use it with overnight oats or chia pudding. It also makes for an absolutely delicious smoothie or acai bowl base. Watch the video after the recipe!
Strawberry Hemp Seed Mylk
1 1/2 cup hemp seeds
4 1/2 cups filtered water
1 tbsp maple syrup (raw, or 2 medjool dates)
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp lemon zest
Nut milk bag or fine mesh strainer
Place all ingredients in blender, and blend until smooth (approximately 30-45 seconds). Strain entire mixture with fine mesh strainer, or nut milk bag. (You can throw away the pulp, or keep and add to smoothies for extra fiber!) Be sure to store your Strawberry Hemp Mylk in the refrigerator, which will keep it for up to five days.
