Learn How to Make Pumpkin Seed Milk! It’s the perfect homemade dairy free alternative for when you run out of your favorite nut milk!

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?

Here is the great thing about seed milks:

  • no soaking required
  • no straining required
  • you just blend and chill and sip!

Is pumpkin milk healthy?

Seeds are loaded with oils, vitamins, and minerals that have tons of health benefits like balancing and regulating hormones.

Pumpkin seeds in particular are high in antioxidants, high in magnesium, may help improve heart health, lower blood sugar levels, and are high in fiber!

Since we’re not straining out any of that goodness, you get to drink all those amazing seedy health benefits!

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!
