I regularly make bottles of plant-based milk using hemp, oats or almonds. I usually do it on a Sunday or Monday morning so that I can enjoy it throughout the week. It makes a delicious and fresh addition to my oatmeal, smoothies, matcha lattes or a bowl of granola. And it is so easy to make. Up until last week, the only milk I’d never made was walnut milk. I tested out this recipe for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. Super tasty!
15 min (excl. soaking time)
5 days in the fridge
125 g (1 cup) walnuts
750 ml (3 cups) water
¼ tsp vanilla extract (unsweetened)
a pinch of sea salt
Soak the walnuts in a bowl of water for 12 hours. Rinse them off and drain them using a sieve. Transfer the walnuts to the blender. Add the other ingredients to the blender and mix until creamy (this takes about two minutes). Transfer to a bottle or jug. If you’re looking for a smoother milk, pour through a fine sieve or even a coffee filter. You can use the leftover pulp to make a smoothie in the morning.
