I have been looking for nut free options for all kinds of dishes lately. Nut milks are a staple in my diet, so I created this seed/grain based milk as an alternative. This a really easy, super filling and very satisfying recipe. A good breakfast or dessert when you’re craving something sweet. If you don’t eat seeds, I assume this would be fine without the hemp. Also, if you don’t want to indulge in your cacao craving, enjoy it without.
A fabulous means of getting your greens! When the delicious combo of garlic and hemp meld with the sweetness of dates, you’ll forget that you’re eating an entire leaf of chard. Also works great with collards or nori.
This can be used as a mayonnaise, a base for desserts, a dressing for salads or cream dip for veggie sticks or for strawberries or other fruit..whatever you desire. It’s so versatile and you can doctor it up however you like. I made this little concoction because I wanted to use up the rest of my fresh basil. It’s quick and easy and the combination of sweet and salty along with its creaminess is really nice. Raw cashews are naturally sweet and so is fresh basil, but I think that soaking the cashews might bring out their sweetness even further. I didn’t soak them this time and they were still sweet and blended very easily to a very creamy consistency.
Thick and creamy dressing thats tangy with a nice hint of spice. You could also double or triple the recipe and use it as a dipping sauce for veggies or nori rolls.
