Top Review by Nick C.

I made this for my flu suffering girlfriend as we were told sunflower seed has good medicinal properties for the respiratory system. Can't comment on the effectiveness, but the drink itself was beautiful. Similar to almond milk and matches well with the ginger and honey. Thanks for recipe! Will be repeating.
