Vanilla Sunflower Seed Milk Recipe

Homemade Sunflower Seed Milk is a good milk alternative made with seeds.

I like to mix up the types of non-dairy milks I use in my kitchen. I find it is helpful to rotate them if you are having new or developing food sensitivities. By rotating the types of nuts and seeds you eat, you are potentially preventing your body from detecting them as a foreign invader (measured as IgG Reactivity to types of food using a blood test) and therefore becoming sensitive to them.

Creamy Sunflower Seed Milk

There are many other good reasons to rotate the types of milk you consume, one of which is they all have different quantities and types of nutrients. It also makes it more interesting, because they all taste different, so you don’t get bored.

I have found this Vanilla Sunflower Seed Milk delightful, thick, and creamy. It is wonderful chilled in a glass, and makes a really frothy steamed milk to use in teas and coffee, and even baking.

Sunflower Seed Milk in a Pitcher

Here’s my recipe:

Vanilla Sunflower Seed Milk

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Raw Sunflower Seeds

4 Cups of Filtered Water

1/8 Tsp. of Monk Fruit (I use this clean label) or 1 to 2 Tablespoons of Honey or Maple Syrup to taste (optional)

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

1/8 Tsp. of Sea Salt

Directions:

Using a fine mesh strainer, rinse the sunflower seeds well. In a 4 cup measuring pitcher, cover the sunflower seeds with cold water up to the 4 cup line. Store covered in the refrigerator overnight to soak.

The next day, pour off the soaking water, and rinse the sunflower seeds again. Put the soaked seeds into a high speed blender. Add 4 cups of filtered water, the Monk Fruit or other sweetener of choice if using, the vanilla and sea salt. Blend on high for 2 minutes.

Pour the mixture from the blender into a super fine mesh strainer (like this) or a milk bag over a bowl. Use a rubber spatula to strain the milk through the sieve into the bowl, or if using a milk bag, gently squeeze out the milk and discard the pulp.

Chill. This will keep in the refrigerator up to 3 days. If you don’t want as much milk, this recipe is easily halved.

Enjoy!
