Raw Sunflower seed Milk
A healthy home-made raw sunflower seed milk! Delicious! This is great for people who are allergic to nut milks!
- 3 cups
- 1 cup of soaked raw sunflower seeds
- Put your 3 cups of water & soaked sunflower seeds in this order in your Vitamix. Blend on full power, using the tamper to push ingredients into the running blades. Blend on full power for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Scrape the sides of your blender if you need to & blend on full power again for max 1 minute. Now, you will end up with about 4.5 cups of fresh home-made sunflower seeds milk, but not strained. This means with the pulp still in it. You can drink it like this but this time, I strained it by using my clean nut milk bag.
- I placed my nut bag into a larger bowl. Then, poured the liquid mix into the bag. Close the bag with the added string & squeeze & squeeze until all the juice is out of your nut milk bag & you end up with only the pulp in the bag & all the liquid into the pot. This will take only a few minutes. I had about 3 cups = 750 ml of milk. Pour milk in a clean bottle with fitting lid & enjoy instantly or place into the fridge. After being in the fridge, you will see separation of the liquid into the bottle. Just shake the bottle well, before using the milk. This tasty sunflower seed milk will keep in the fridge for about 3 to 4 days. Place the leftover nut pulp in a pot with fitting lid & place into the fridge for later use in cookies, smoothies, banana breads & muffins! Enjoy! I prefer to keep my home-made nut & seeds milks plain & add vanilla, cinnamon, maca powder, cacao or carob later to it when I make smoothies or hot drinks with it. 😉
