One Minute Cooking: Almond/Pumpkin Seed Milk!!

Enjoy this delicious and nutritious twist on Almond Milk by adding Pumpkin seeds! By adding pumpkin seeds, we increase the micronutrients in each serving. The health benefits from adding Almonds or Pumpkin seeds to your diet are numerous! Almonds lower the risk of heart attacks, contains laetrile (anti-cancer), contains iron and copper used as a remedy for anemia, and helps to lower bad cholesterol. They are also a good source of protein, rich in vitamin E, and supplies lasting energy. By adding Pumpkin seeds, they reduce arthritic inflammation, beneficial for the prostate, promotes good sleep, and hair restoration. Both Almonds and Pumpkin seeds are Alkaline Forming, increase good cholesterol (HDL), and promote healthy bones and teeth. By soaking nuts and seeds prior to making the milk, you neutralize the enzyme inhibitors, activate the full nutrient potential of the nut or seed, easier to digest and absorb more of the micronutrients into your system, and makes them easier to pulverize, making for a creamier “milk”. I prefer my nut or seed milks plain. Feel free to add your own twist to this recipe. Possibly, natural vanilla extract or 3-6 pitted prunes, figs, or dates (as a whole food sweetener).
For Chocolate Almond Milk add a couple Tbsp of raw cocoa powder, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and sweeten to taste with a few pitted figs, prunes, or dates.
For Cinnamon Milk add in 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla, and a few pitted figs, prunes, or dates..
For Strawberry Milk add in desired amount of strawberries with vanilla and a few pitted figs, prunes, or dates. Enjoy!!
