This is a great alternative to traditional milk-shakes. It’s high in all of the essential amino acids thanks to the pumpkin seeds and buckwheat. It’s also a great source of fibre, magnesium, zinc and other fantastic health giving nutrients. You’ll need a high speed blender such as a Vitamix to make it really smooth.
Time: 5 minutes
- 1 tbs / 8g almonds (preferably soak for at least 8 hours and rinsed well)
- 1 tbs / 10g pumpkin seeds (preferably soak for at least 8 hours and rinsed well)
- 1 tbs / 8g buckwheaties or sprouted buckwheat
- 1 cm vanilla pod
- 1-2 date
- 1-1.5 cup / 2-300 ml water or cooled herbal tea of your preference (I love pau d’arco in this recipe)
Blend well until smooth.
This is a great mylk to use as the basis of a breakfast, such as this one.
Add a pinch of cinnamon for a little spice and to balance blood sugar.
Add a small nob of fresh ginger or half a teaspoon of ginger for a warming winter drink.
