Dietitian's Answer

When a recipe asks for 1/4 cup or 1/8 cup of almond milk or coconut water, we are referring to a measuring cup that has designated lines on the cup and you pour your ingredient until you reach the line. They are used for liquids.

When the recipe asks for 1/4 cup spinach or 2 tablespoon of hemp seeds, we are referring to use measuring spoons. They are often used for dry ingredients.
