I am in ‘love’…with Tempt Hemp Ice Cream :-)


It is a good time for those with multiple food allergies in the quest for dairy alternatives. There are more substitutes available than ever before – Rice Milk, Oat Milk, and more recently Hemp Milk.  Personally, I find Hemp Milk by far the most nutritious because it has a much higher fat and protein content than the either Oat or Rice milk. That is a definite plus when giving it as a dairy alternative to children – especially the balanced quantities of fatty and amino acids. Living Harvest – a company with its roots in Canada and presently headquartered in Portland, Oregon (surprise, surprise 🙂 )  is the force behind Tempt Hemp Milk and other Hemp Milk products. Hemp Milk is definitely a very creamy dairy substitute and works quite well in cooking too. I have used it to make rice pudding, soups, pasta sauce etc. but as a drink my little one din’t quite like it. However, if you like the taste and are not allergic to Hemp seed – Hemp Milk is definitely one of the most nutritious dairy alternative drinks to try. Living Harvest has a great short write-up about Hemp which is definitely worth a read and titled ‘Why hemp?

That being said…I was ecstatic when on one my regular jaunts to Whole Foods Food Market, I spotted Tempt Hemp Chocolate Fudge Ice cream. Maybe, just maybe my little one would enjoy hemp milk in ice cream! And, yes – Tempt hit the bull’s eye with my son. He just loved the creamy chocolate fudge ice cream – yumm for him and yayy for me! Now, I can wait to try all the Tempt Hemp ice cream flavors presently out there…Vanilla, Mint Chip, Coffee Biscotti (this one is for the coffee-lover in me!), Coconut lime (mmm – sounds perfect on a cool summer evening!)! The good news is not over yet – yes, Tempt has ice cream bars too. Vanilla with bluberry pomegranate swirls (that sounds chef fancy), Chocolate Fudge (mmm – decadent), Coffee with cream swirls (someone in Tempt knows what I like!! 🙂 ) and Vanilla with Fudge swirls! How cool is that?!?

Dont overthink this decision – grab a tub of tempt hemp milk ice cream the next time you are in a health food store and you are not going to regret it one bit. Given the nutrional power punch the little hemp seed packs, I am definitely going to try their protein powder too for my next berry protein shake after a vigorous workout 🙂

  2. I don’t know if you have had any feedback on this product but hemp causes intense vomiting for me. Just throwing it out there in case others don’t know it can cause this if there is an intolerance or allergy to the product. Hope your readers can enjoy it but it makes me sick just looking at the box! 😜
