It didn’t take long after samples of hempmilk frozen dessert arrived in our office for the pot jokes—and questions—to start flying.

“None for me, I’ve got to focus at today’s meeting.”
“I’m afraid it will give me the munchies.”
“How do you get milk out of hemp?”

To start with, Tempt is made from a cousin of the marijuana plant, and has none of that drug’s hallucinogenic properties. Made from the nuts, or seeds, of the hemp plant, it’s being sold in pints nationwide starting next month, and comes in flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, mint chip, and coconut lime.

Why an ice cream substitute made from hemp? It has no common allergens (great for vegans and others avoiding dairy), no cholesterol, and 92% of its fat content is made up of omega fatty acids. That’s right, those are the “good fats” we’re being told we need to eat more of.

Tempt doesn’t have the creamy richness of premium ice creams (most tasters described it as more like ice milk). But for those with dietary restrictions, it might hold a certain appeal. It’s made by Living Harvest, which also makes hemp milk. Peace out, dude.
