For a long time I wondered what do you do with melon seeds?
NOT WASTE - Most people usually eat melon and discard melon seeds. And I am totally guilty of that. All my life, I either threw away or composted melon seeds. One day I said to myself, "What a waste of a highly nutritious food!" I tried to eat the seeds them, but it was too much work to get the seeds from their shell, and then I realized that I could just make melon seed milk, in the same way that I was making almond milk.
EASY & SAFE MONEY - Yes! You can make very easily melon milk out of any melon seeds (Honeydew, Cantaloupe, (ect.), and it saves you money at the same time.
WEIGHT LOSS - Contrary to a popular unscientific belief, that low-fat diets help you to lose weight, scientific studies actually show that including nuts and seeds (high in fat) in your diet can actually help you to lose weight, and even live longer!
NUTRITION - I was unable to find the nutrition data of melon seeds, but squash and melon are in the same family, so I am guessing they will be similar in nutrients. According to http://nutritiondata.self.com squash seeds, are "a good source of Protein, Vitamin K, Iron and Copper, and a very good source of Magnesium, Phosphorus and Manganese."
Blender - You do not need a high-speed blender (such as Vitamix or Blendtec) for making any kind of nut milk. We recommend using a glass jar blender (Dynablend Clean DB-950 or Oster Pro 1200) to avoid toxic chemicals from plastic leaching into your food. Click here to watch our videos for more details
Nut Milk Bag - To avoid eating synthetic fibers and leaching toxic chemicals from nylon nut milk bag (often just relabeled paint strainers) into your food, I recommend using a 100% organic or natural nut milk bag.
NOTE: On Amazon.com and Ebay.com there are many fake nut milk bags that claim to be "organic" but are in fact not organic, and not even fully natural. Click here to read our article EXPOSED! Fake Organic Hemp Nut milk Bags sold on Amazon.
Strainer - If you do not have a nut milk bag, a stainless steel fine mesh strainer will also work well if you are only working with a small amount of seeds (1 cup or less).
USES - Melon seed milk can be used in any dairy-free recipes to substitute for dairy milk, in carob smoothies, green smoothies, tropical mixed fruit smoothie and on your cereals and muesli.
For 1 Batch(es)
If you do not want to make melon seed milk you can just add melon seeds right into your smoothie. They are quite fibery, but if you are experienced vegan or plant based eater you will handle it.☺
