Homemade nut milks


For any of you dairy-free folk, nut milks have been an amazing alternative to add to cereals, smoothies and other recipes. Unfortunately not all nut milks are as ‘clean’ as we would like and can contain many unwanted additives.

To get all the goodness from these milks, it is great if you can make them from scratch on the weekend…

Try this recipe and boost your grey matter!

Walnut milk

-1 cup raw walnuts, soaked
-4 cups (875 mL) filtered water
-3 pitted Medjool dates
-1/2 teaspoon madagascar vanilla extract
-1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
-Small pinch Redmonds Real salt (rich in minerals)


-Place walnuts in a bowl and cover with water, leaving overnight in the fridge..  Rinse and drain well.
-Place drained walnuts into a blender along with the filtered water, pitted dates, and vanilla. Blend well.
-Pour mixture into a nut milk bag and gently squeeze the bottom of the bag, filtering out the milk into a bowl.
