Raw Chef Gena Hemshaw enjoys the smooth texture and versatility of strained nut mylks, she says " I almost always strain mine, but I also like to leave them as they are sometimes — unstrained mylks are thick, rich, and far more decadent! When I tasted this pumpkin seed creation, I knew it was perfect just as it was, and didn’t want to ruin it."
