Cute green little pumpkin seeds! Good for so many things, including:
a healthy dose of iron
muscle relaxing nutrients
These little gems are great tossed on a salad, eaten raw, even toasted and salted. But they can do so much more than that! Including, be made into a mylk (that’s plant-based spelling for milk). It takes just 5 minutes (that’s nothing!) and if you’re preparing a smoothie, halve the recipe and toss all ingredients in with the rest of the smoothie ingredients for a creamy finish and an even shorter trip to the kitchen!
RECIPE: Simple Pumpkin Seed Mylk
Time: 5 minutes
Taste: Silky & Smooth
Action: Blood sugar balancing & Satiating
1/4C raw pumpkin seeds
2C filtered water
1/2t pure vanilla extract
1 pinch Himalayan pink sea salt
Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender until smooth (approximately 30-45 seconds).
For a silkier mylk, one you’d drink straight or add to #’s 3 & 4 below, strain it through a fine sieve. Otherwise, it’s good to go as-is for #’s 1 & 2 below.
What To Make With This Mylk
Use it as the base for your smoothies.
Use it as the base for your hot elixir beverages.
Add it to a nice herbal tea.
Add it to your coffee.
Drink it all by itself - it’s great warm or cold!
