Pumpkin Seed Carrot Ginger Milk Recipe

This inexpensive seed milk is made with carrots and pumpkin seeds. It’s creamy and sweet making it the perfect healthy dairy-free dessert drink.

This carrot milk is a great breakfast drink as it has healthy fats, protein and sugars to set you up for the day.

You will need some muslin or a nylon bag in order to get a smooth seed milk. If you don’t have any of these you can just use a fine sieve and get nice milk but it will have a few lumps of goodness.

You can use old clothes instead of buying anything specifically to make nut and seed milk. Nylon bags are popular as it takes a few seconds to clean under a running tap.

No need to peel your ginger as the skin is fine to eat but a bit tough, this doesn’t matter for this seed milk as it’s blended and strained. The skin is where lots of the nutrients in ginger (and most other things) are found so don’t peel for maximum nutritional benefit.

I often add a pinch of turmeric for its health benefits. I’ve omitted it from the video recipe as some people do seem to dislike turmeric. You don’t have to add the dates if you want a less sweet milk.

I use a nylon bag as it takes a few seconds to clean under the running tap. To clean a nylon bag empty the fibre then place your hand in the bag and run under the tap while rubbing to dislodge all the seed remains. Turn inside repeat the rinse then place somewhere to air.

You can use a cheese cloth or old clothes but it will take longer to get out all of the seed remains and to dry. Nut and seed bags seem to be quite expensive from some places, I bought 10 for $10 many years ago. I clean them out straight after using and they last for years. You can make your own if you are handy with stitching.

Pumpkin carrot seed milk with cinnamon

The straining is optional but for a milk it’s advisable. It’s still great without it but is more of a smoothie. Remember to not discard the seed fibre remains. They may be dry and not tasty to eat on their own as lots of the moisture and fat has been squeezed out. They are however great used as a replacement for oat or coconut flour in baking recipes – replace upto 50% of the flour in recipes . I don’t usually like pumpkin seeds but in this sweet milk you don’t taste the earthiness that you can sometimes get from pumpkin seeds. The carrots make this a wonderful golden tempting colour and give the milk a hefty amount of beta carotene.
