Properties of sunflower seeds

Sunflower seeds not only provide omega-6s, zinc, selenium, and vitamin E, but also offer polyphenols that support gut health. It is ideal to use as a garnish or in salads and vegetable burgers. Its taste is amazing.

Plant-based creams are a healthy, vegan alternative to dairy-based creams. We are well aware of the cruelty of the dairy industry and the harmful effects of its products on health and the environment.

These alternative dairy products are also growing in mainstream markets due to people’s demand for a more natural lifestyle. But the supply of this type of alternative product is sometimes misleading and naturally scarce. They may even contain processed or trans fats, as well as unnatural preservatives, colorings, flavor enhancers, stabilizers or texturizers with no nutritional value.

Better to make them homemade with good organic ingredients. So, if you want to be sure of what you are consuming, the easiest way is to prepare it yourself. Preparing it at home will guarantee you a pure and quality product, since you will have total control over the ingredients.

How to make homemade vegan cream

You need one cup of hulled and activated sunflower seeds with three-quarters of a cup of filtered water and a tablespoon of nutritional yeast or beer.

Mix everything in the blender until you obtain a creamy and smooth texture, without traces of seeds.

You can prepare different types of vegan cream at home with raw and activated seeds or nuts. Activation is a very simple process: they are washed well with filtered water and left to soak in lukewarm water for 8-12 hours; after soaking, they are again well washed. This technique increases the availability of its nutrients and facilitates their assimilation.
