Since I am sensitive to dairy, and my daughter is sensitive to almonds, I have started making my own walnut milk!
Its so easy to make, anyone can do it. I take one cup walnuts and soak them in water with some salt for 8 hours. You can put it in the fridge or on the counter.
After 8 hours, rinse the walnuts well. Then place them in a blender with 5 cups water. Blend for several minutes.
Let it sit for a few minutes and skim the bubbles (foam) off the top. Use a nut bag, cheese cloth or a fine mesh strainer to filter out the nut pulp from the milk.
Save the pulp to make something else.
Sometimes I add honey for taste, but most of the time I drink it plain.
The process is the same for making almond milk too. If all the mystery ingredients scare you in the store bought stuff, I highly recommend making your own.
You can make milk from almost anything. Cashews only need to soak for 6 hours.
I use walnut milk to make lattes, smoothies, anything you’d use regular milk for.
