Grain milks used same as seed and nut milks – as a beverage or as base for soups, dressings, smoothies. It is also believed to help building your muscle, stimulate your strength and stamina. It is yet another great way to get live enzymes, carbohydrates, proteins and easy to digest.

Buckwheat 'Milk'

1 out of 5

It was horrable, i could not strain it, and it was way to think without straining. Had to dump it out. :(

I have a bag of BW groats I have been wondering what to do with, this sounds like an interesting idea. By biggest issue has been in sproating, still figuring it out!

Thank you for all your nice comments... I have been making it for some time and love various options improvising with fruit or as a soup base or chai late. I also vary by adding small portion of other nuts: Brazilian nut, cashew or sesame seeds. As a combo it takes great flavors.

Hello, I just wanted to say this recipe has saved me a lot of money and is better for health than the rice milks and even hemp milks I was paying for at stores. The beauty of this milk is so long as you really rinse over and over and let it soak as described is that you can get some impressive zinc, copper, manganese, magnesium and complex carbohydrates from it. It has impressive attributes to enable it to lower cholesterol, build blood and lower blood sugar levels. As well it is not technically a grain, it is a seed and is related to the rhubarb family. It is one of the greatest superfoods currently recorded and I would encourage anyone to do some research on it's impressive properties and begin to encorporate it in your diet. Anyway thanks for putting up this recipe ^_^.

Great recipe, especially for the transitioning Raw Foodist. Blended it with 10 dates and .25 cup agave & vanilla, came out a bit too sweet, suggest toning it down from that. Also mixing it with wheat sprouts will give you a breakfast cereal.

Lol, before even reading the comments I was going to suggest using this recipe, but modifying it by adding blackberries or blueberries. I bought berries today just to try it!! I never sprouted buckwheat before....so I'm pretty excited, esp if it's easy to digest!!!

Is this buckwheat groats? Obviously not buckwheat flour, right? Sorry for the stupid question.
