Making your own nut and seed milk at home is easy, quick, and inexpensive to make. It is also far healthier than what you can buy in the store. In this recipe the sunflower seeds can be substituted with almonds, hazlenuts, cashews, brazil nuts, etc. Most almond and soy milk available to purchase in stores is made with a high heat method that kills many of the nutrients and good fats/oils that are in nuts and seeds. By soaking the seeds in this recipe you begin the sprouting process which produces more enzymes, making this version far superior to what you can find in stores.
