Pumpkin Seed Milk

Healthy Cooking with Kamalaya

Makes 1 litre

A super healthy lactose-free alternative to dairy milk, pumpkin seed milk helps to reduce cholesterol and boost immunity. It also helps to keep bones strong and has anti-inflammatory benefits. A great drink for men, as it can improve the symptoms associated with prostate enlargement.. You can use this recipe as a milk substitute in cooking, with your cereals or as a delicious, healing drink. If you’re using it in a savoury dish, you will need to eliminate or significantly reduce the raisins. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Pumkin Seeds 350 g
Distilled water, warm 1 litre
Raisins 100 g

Place the seeds, raisins and warm water in a blender, and blend on medium for about 1 minute. Strain mixture through a fine sieve and discard pulp. Couldn’t be easier!

(If time allows, it is best to soak the seeds in water overnight before blending – strain and discard the soaking water.)
