How to Make Canary Grass Seed (Alpiste) Milk

The benefits of consuming canary grass seed milk are abundant, and the good news is that making the milk is not difficult at all. You will need very few items. Here is the recipe, enjoy!

5 tbs. of Canary grass seed




Cinnamon sticks (optional)

-Leave the Canary grass seed soaking overnight or for at least 8 hrs. (If you would like to add cinnamon to the milk, also leave 1 cinnamon stick soaking overnight)

-Grind the seeds (and cinnamon) with the desired amount of fresh water in the blender. The thicker you want the milk, the less water you should add.

-Percolate the mixture through a sieve. Don’t eat the actual seed. You should only consume the milky liquid.

-Store in the fridge.

Five tbs. of canary grass seed should give you enough milk for a day. It is better to consume the milk on the same day it was made. Therefore, I recommend you make a fresh batch every day, rather than storing it for long periods of time.

You must not add any kind of sugar or sweetener to your milk, as this will kill the natural curative enzymes found in the seed. Cinnamon can be added as an option.

Hi Adam:

I buy my Alpiste seed at local health food stores. I wouldn't know where to buy it online. Sorry, I don't think I was of any help in this matter. Thank you for reading.

you need to fix your recipe, it states that 5 pounds of seed will make enough milk for a day? all other recipes state 2 tbl. to a cup of water twice a day. you would be hard pressed to consume 5 pounds of anything in a day.
