Wondering, do any of you guys get cantaloupe seeds from people that throw them away?? I heard about this…is it too much of a hassle?? I like milk but do not make it that often, nuts are expensive and I’d rather eat them that milk them.
Somehow, I want to go get some free cantaloupe seeds then.
About cantaloupe seed milk…is it GOOD or is it just plain OK?? I mean, do any of you love it or do some of you prefer almond or something…I never had cantaloupe milk yet. Do you have to add part of the flesh to it to make it sweet or could I use raw honey or something like that??
Also, my dad hates watermelon and melons, will he like cantaloupe milk???? We are trying to minimize the amount of dairy he consumes. I also found that we can give him foods without telling him him what is in it. Like, avocado with honey and a large spoonful of carob powder. It tastes like chocolate pudding and he did not know the difference. He hates Carob and would have been disgusted at the thought of an avocado dessert, but he loved the pudding!!
I’ve made a smoothie from one of my books that takes the whole cantaloupe (no rind) with seeds and blends it all up with a little cinnamon. I don’t taste the seeds at all but like the benefit of eating them and not wasting them. I don’t know about using the seeds alone.
I tried to “milk” the seeds alone and then added water to finish the blending… Didn’t work for me, could have done something wrong as it was earily in my raw days… The seeds didn’t breakup like I thought they should… The seeds pieces were sharp and difficult to chew… NOT A PARTY IN MY MOUTH!!!
i’ve always made it like amysue—added to the cantaloupe itself and cinnamon. it’s awesome! i don’t know how the milk tastes just by itself, but i’d assume it’s pretty mild. i’m sure you could use honey as a sweetener instead of the cantaloupe. i’d think it would be a hassle trying to find people who were throwing the seeds away, but who knows?
this was one of my favorite raw discoveries! it’s great to not have to worry about the nuts, and this way you know for a fact your milk is raw, too! hope you and your dad enjoy it.
