FMTV - Pumpkin Seed Milk

Pumpkin Seed Milk

Exclusive on FMTV

Series: Plant-Based Nut Milks | Episode: 1 | Runtime: 01m 34s | Release date: 2017

This segment features: Rachel Morrow.

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!

This gets confusing. In the recipes it doesn't say anything about drying the nuts and seeds. But there are 155 comments on this issue "what to do" and it gets lengthy.

Hi Faye! After soaking, you can slowly roast at very low heat (150°F/65°C) in an oven or dehydrator for 12 to 24 hours (roasting time will vary on the nut you are using). The nuts are ready when they are completely dried out. You can read this article on how you can activate your nuts and seeds: http://www.foodmatters.com/article/should-you-activate-your-nuts-and-seeds. ~ Jasmin

So do you have to dry nuts after soaking over night or can you use after soaking overnight . I’m new at making Nut milk I want to be sure I’m doing it correctly

Is it possible to have a mixed-nut/seed milk?? I am wondering if that way you get access to more/diverse nutrients. For example, instead of 1 cup of cashews, can it be 1/4 cup cashews with 1/4 cup pumpkin, 1/4 cup sesame, 1/4 cup sunflower?? or something like that, just an idea...what do you think?? :)

I would guess you mean raw nuts and seeds. Is this right?
also some soaking methods use salt or an acid to neutralize the enzymes. Is that necessary here?

Hello Cynthia, yes! You may use your Hurom Juicer. If in doubt, it would be best to check if your Hurom Juicer has this feature :)
