We all know that nut milks are having their time in the limelight. Almond milk is a standard on my grocery list and I love playing around with making my own!
From almond to pecan milk to cashew milk, nut milks are here to stay. But, well what the heck about seed milks? Why aren’t they coming in hot yet? Guys, I actually love making seed milks. Want to know why? Well, two reasons. First, you don’t have to worry about the whole soaking thing. Second, you don’t have to worry about the whole straining thing.
See, seed milk is easy! Super low maintenance and if you’re all out of your nut milk and want a quick dairy free milk to step in, I strongly suggest seed milk.
Seeds are loaded with oils, vitamins, and minerals that have tons of health benefits like balancing and regulating hormones. My friend Kelsey wrote a whole blog post about how she used seed cycling to help regulate her period and get pregnant! Seriously so amazing.
I don’t have a routine, but I do try to sprinkle seeds into my diet legit whenever I can. So, I thought it would be fun to experiment a bit with pumpkin seed milk!
So let’s do it! Let me show you reeeealll quick (it takes like 3 minutes tops) How to Make: Pumpkin Seed Milk!
This recipe is super basic: just seeds and water. I threw some vanilla and sea salt in there too for some extra flavor. You can also add a couple tablespoons of agave nectar, honey or maple syrup to make it a bit sweetener. I generally like to keep it without any sweetener and then mix in however much sweetness I want depending on what I’m using the pumpkin seed milk for.
So “how do you make it,” you ask? You put it all in a blender then drink it! That simple, my friends!!Print
