This morning I made a fresh batch of hemp 'n half and, for the first time, tried pre-grinding the hemp seeds and chia seeds. (I used my beloved Cuisinart Nut and Spice Grinder for this purpose, but a regular coffee grinder would do.)
After just a quick buzz in the grinder, I added the ground seeds to my Vita Mix and proceeded as described in the last post.
WOW! The results are sooo creamy! Honestly, I have to say: maté latte never tasted better!
I plan to use pre-grinding method again – if not always, at least from time to time. Although Hemp 'n Half comes out fantastic without pre-grinding (which does add an extra step) the results might just be a little bit more ultimate in the smooth and rich department.
A votre sante! ♥ Diana
