Nut milk is great non-dairy, non-soy alternative and super healthy! They're convenient, delicious and portable. Plus they're bursting with health benefits. Packed with healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, protein and fiber, they'll help curb your appetite, keep you regular, and help to maintain healthy gut bacteria.
You can make a variety of plant-based milk by blending raw nuts and seeds, with water. Homemade milk is fresh, free of additives and preservatives, and you can experiment with different kinds of nuts and seeds.
Why It's So Good For You?
Pumpkin seeds are high in minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, zinc, iron, copper and essential fatty acids! You'll find they are a little cheaper than nuts that you would usually use to create your own milk at home, making it a great alternative to almond or cashew milk while still offering a whole bunch of health benefits.
Add this as a base to your smoothies, oatmeal, chia puddings or drink a glass on its own!
