Hemp heart seeds make an excellent base for blending as a dip, sauce, salad dressing, or smoothie. Hemp hearts also make the quickest and easiest milk. If you are allergic to avocado try hemp as a substitute for the avocado dressing recipes, about 3 tablespoons of hemp hearts with 3-4 tablespoons of water.
It is important when following the alkaline diet principles to include probiotic foods that will help support and maintain a healthy gut balance. The secret ingredient to do that in this dip is Kamut Rejuvelac.
This recipe is quick to whip up once you have all of your ingredients ready. The rejuvelac is easy to make, you just need a few days to grow the probiotics. Once you have made it, the rejuvelac will store well in a glass jar in the fridge to use with all of your recipes. When used in salad dressing and dip recipes, it lends a faint cheesy flavor to the blend.
If you don’t have any rejuvelac on hand, you can substitute with lemon juice. It’ll be just as delicious and a bit more tart.
Try this dip with Zucchini Flax Crackers, as a dip for chopped veggies, or pour it over your salad for a creamy salad dressing.
