How to make Easy Homemade Hemp Butter – it’s a lot easier than you think!
I did an experiment the other day, I thought to myself “Can I treat hemp seeds the same way I treat nuts to make butter?” So, I put it to the test. Technically, it should work, due to the high-fat content in both nuts and hemp seeds. Essentially, the way nut butter is made is by blitzing nuts until the fat separates from the nuts and everything becomes creamy. The same method was applied with making this hemp butter, blitz, and the fat separated from the hemp seeds and it worked. In fact, it worked much better, it was much quicker.
Making hemp butter can be great if you are allergic to nuts, or just want to incorporate more of that superfood into your diet. You can spread it on your morning toast, use it in smoothies, in desserts, the options are endless.
