Superfood Milk Recipe
  • 3 cups water (1 extra cup if a lighter version is desired for adults)
  • ½ cup of pepitas or raw cashews (use 1 cup for toddlers)
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup lightly packed greens (optional for phytonutrients)
  1. Ideally, the night before, soak the nuts and seeds in a glass jar with just enough water to cover them and drain in the morning. This helps removes naturally occurring phytic acids and improves mineral absorption and digestibility.
  2. Blend all of the ingredients on high in a blender until creamy. A high-powered blender like a Vitamix works perfectly. You may need to strain the “milk” for kids if you’re using a basic blender.
  3. Regardless, store the Superfood Milk in a glass jar (with a lid) in the refrigerator and drink it within 3 days.
Important Note for Parents: Some pediatricians consider it safe to introduce nuts to non-allergic babies (no family history of nut allergies) before they are 12months old. Most pediatricians, however, recommend introducing nuts to babies who are at least 12months old. If there is a history of allergies or sensitivities, parents might be advised to wait until their child is 24-26months. Unfortunately, there isn’t a strong consensus on when to introduce nuts or any other common allergens so it’s best to talk with your pediatrician. My recommendation, regardless of their age, is to always introduce new foods to babies in the morning so you can keep a close eye on any changes with their breathing, skin, or digestion.
