Today we’re learning how to make milk… sunflower seed style.
This recipe is awesome for anyone who who’s allergic to nuts, oats, rice, soy or any other ingredient that’s been transformed into a dairy-free milk.
… and if you’re allergic to sunflower seeds, have you seen my flax milk recipe?
… and if you’re allergic to flax… well, umm… let me know and I’ll see if I can create something for you. I’m always up for a challenge!
If allergies aren’t your name of the healthy living game, I bet you’re wondering, ‘Why make milk out of Sunflower seeds?’ I’ll tell you why…
Little power bombs, these guys are.

I’m sure this recipe could be made with any type of blender. Just make sure that you soak the seeds and let the blender grind them up into the finest, fine powder… ever.
When its all blended, you need to separate the fiber from the milk. To do this, get yourself a nut milk bag (seriously, the best $7.99 you’ll ever spend).
Once you’ve poured the milk in the bag, squeeze gently until all of the liquid has been removed. Make sure you don’t go all Rambo on the bag or the fiber from the seeds will get pushed through the mesh bag – or worse – out the top of the bag.
Not like I’ve ever done that or anything…
Wash your blender quickly, add the milk back to your blender along with vanilla, maple and salt. Blend for a 20 second or so, to combine well.
Pour into a pretty jar and sip right from the jar (no one will know), get yourself a glass and go to town, or chill for a couple of hours and pour over a bowl of cereal.
Whatever you do, I know it wont go to waste!
Speaking of waste, I’d love your thoughts on what I should do with this sunflower seed pulp. I don’t have the heart to throw it out!
Totally unrelated to sunflower seeds – the Healthful Pursuit Facebook Page hit 10,000 likes on Sunday night and I recorded a little video of gratitude for you when I heard the news. Getting to chat with each of you on a daily basis, cook my brains out and share my health experience is the bestest ever… and I owe it all to you!
