Experimenting With Seed Milks: 4 Rawsome Recipes

hemp-seed-milk-mason-jar

Plant-based milks have been increasing in popularity over the past few years. With the understanding that dairy products may be doing more harm to the body than good, people are experimenting with a variety of plant-based dairy alternatives. Not only are plant-based dairy alternatives nutrient dense, but they are also delicious and easier for the body to process, provided you aren’t buying the ones that contain added sugars and flavorings.

 

In case you haven’t noticed, we have been posting a lot of plant-based dairy alternative recipes. Many of these dairy-free recipes contain nuts, and we recognize that there are many people out there with nut allergies. There is no reason that people, who have nut allergies and want to cleanse, should have limited diets. This is where our seed-based, nut-free recipes will become your best friends.

 

The instructions for how to make seed milks and nut milks are exactly the same. Both nuts and seeds have to be soaked in water for several hours, drained, then blended with water, and strained through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth. They stay the freshest if kept in an airtight glass jar or bottle in the fridge. It is recommended to consume them within five days. Below you’ll find four seed milk recipes and instructions. We hope you like them!

 

Pumpkin Seed Milk:

The flavor and color of pumpkin seed milk may surprise you because it is quite nutty and has a subtle green tint, giving the impression that it is mint-flavored. Pumpkin seeds have been known to improve prostate health, heart health, and have even helped reduce the risk of certain cancers. Here’s how to make the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds (soaked overnight and then drained)
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons 100% pure grade A maple syrup

Instructions:

  • Add all of ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Place a cheesecloth over a large bowl to help strain your pumpkin seed milk.
  • Slowly pour the mixture through the cheesecloth and squeeze it to make sure you get every ounce of seed milk that you can.

    Q: Members of my house have started drinking Hemp Milk and Rice Milk. No more Cow Milk! We like the taste of both. I also like the fact that the hemp milk has omega and other nutrients in it. However, my son is three years old and we have discovered he is allergic to nuts because a family member gave him a cashew to eat, then his eyes began to swell up like Garfield the cat. I had him tested for food allergies and the test revealed he is allergic to nuts and soy. So I don't give him any nut products or soy products. My question for you is: "Is hemp a nut or a seed, is the hemp milk derived from a nut or a seed???" I need to know other alternatives if in fact it is a nut. I do not want to give him something toxic to him.

    A:

    Hemp is a seed, not a nut, so hemp seed milk is okay for him.

    Nuts cashews - peanuts, soy

    Grains - rice, oats

    Fruit - almond, coconut, banana, date

    Hey, I'll do an article that will be up on Dherbs early next week!

    Q: You said to get the FULL BODY DETOX and milk thistle seed tea for someone with hepatitis C, but on your site I don't see the milk thistle seed tea listed under hepatitis C, one more thing would you take the same for hep. C as you would for hep. A or B, I am just trying to be sure before I get this started.

    A:

    FOLLOW THE ADVICE IN THE ARTICLE AS WELL. PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX FIRST AND THEN CONTINUE WITH THE MAINTENANCE FORMULAS (LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FORMULA, VITAMIN C FORMULA, ETC.). HOWEVER, THE MILK THISTLE TEA IS GREAT FOR ALL LIVER CONDITIONS AND HEPATITIS FALLS IN THIS CATEGORY. IT DOESN’T MATTER IF THE HEPATITIS IS A, B, OR C. IT'S A PROBLEM WITH THE LIVER AND SO THE LIVER NEEDS TO BE CLEANSED AND DETOXIFIED.

    Q: Several people in the conscious community have stated that adding flax seeds and/or flax seed powder to our diet benefits the colon for complete and clean bowel movements. My question is, does flax seed powder or the seeds themselves promote parasites in the stomach and colon? A few of my friends and I have completed the parasite cleanse and got into a debate about it. Thank you very much, Hotep!

    A:

    Flax seed undoubtedly helps the colon (due to fiberous nature) but it is absurd to think or suggest that flax seeds (in any form) promotes parasites. Meat, dairy, refined grains and other processed foods is what promotes parasites in the stomach, colon, and rest of the body. So, as Public Enemy would say: "Don't believe the hype!"

    Q: I just ordered the FULL BODY DETOX and I know there's a dietary regimen that I will have to follow. I was wondering if you would approve of a protein shake that consist of (raw hemp protein powder, raw almond butter, sea salt, flax seed, 100% young coconut water & meat inside the coconut, raw carob powder,) (optional soy or rice milk or soy or rice cream)

    A:

    Doesn't sound like it will mess up your FULL BODY DETOX. Go for it! But leave out the rice/soy cream! The rice milk is okay (but it is processed/cooked)!

    Q: I was looking at your recipes for infant milk. I am breast feeding but need to wean. I was interested in giving him rice milk (Rice Dream enriched with vitamin a, c, and other vitamins). However, the website says not for use as infant formula. Why would this not be a good substitute? What would this be lacking? Why is your recipe a complete formula for proper infant nutrition? Please Help a concerned new mom!

    A:

    Rice Dream is fortified with SYNTHETIC nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and therefore it's not a good source of organic nutrition. If you use Rice Dream, please fortify it with organic nutrition like Dherbs.com Moringa Seed Extract, and Iodine Phosphate Extract (add 5 dropperfuls of each formula to infant milk).

    A:

    Saw palmetto berries would be the best thing to take. Read our free articles. We have some articles that touch on this subject!
