When it comes to milk (or shall I say mylk?), the options are endless. There’s pea, oat, nut, potato—heck, scientists even think cockroach milk could be the newest superfood. But don’t worry: another good-for-you option doesn’t involve creepy crawlers—just nutrient-packed pumpkin seeds.

Like a true wellness queen, Jordan Younger—the blogger behind The Balanced Blonde—spends her Saturday nights making her homemade pumpkin seed milk. The mix—which she shared on Instagram—requires only three ingredients, and Younger says it makes for the perfect addition to everything from your morning smoothies and granola to your favorite desserts.

To make it yourself, just grab 1/2 cup organic raw pumpkin seeds, 2 pitted Medjool dates, “lots of cinnamon,” and 2 cups of water. After blending it on high, it shouldn’t take long for it to become nice and creamy. Once it’s to your liking, simply store it in an airtight container (Younger prefers Mason jars) and refrigerate.

The mix should last a few days in the refrigerator, but let’s be honest—there’s a pretty solid chance it will disappear before then.
