Who knew you can make something that so resembles the classic? And without the use of nut milk too! And yet, the first time I tasted this with cinnamon, I thought, “Hmmm… tastes like Christmas.” And my grandmother said, “Hmmm… if a person didn’t know better, they would think this is watered down cow milk.” To which I replied, “Like skim milk?!”
This is my hemp-ified version of a classic. Hemp provides the perfect base for this pesto. It has a slightly nutty and green taste, which compliments the cucumber and the greens as well as, well, everything else in the recipe! Hemp hearts are a great source of Omega fatty acids and easy to assimilate proteins. So, eat up!
