This super chocolate-y sunflower "milk" is a divine treat and it’s full of powerful superfoods that will keep your energy soaring.

Using raw cacao means you're adding valuable minerals and antioxidants while the soaked sunflower seeds deliver a nutrient-dense protein punch. You can control the sweetness with the dates—four is a great start, but add one or two more if you want more whole food sweetness.

Superfood Chocolate Sunflower Milk

Serves 4


  • 3 cups Water
  • 1 cup soaked sunflower seeds
  • 4-6 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Soak raw sunflower seeds by covering them with water in a bowl for at least 4 hours or overnight in the fridge.

Drain and rinse and they are ready to go.

Blend all ingredients and enjoy.

You can store in the fridge and drink within four days.
