I’m in love with walnuts at the moment and love to blend them with filtered water and vanilla bean to make the most delicious omega 3 rich walnut milk.
Nut and seed milks are a delicious lactose free alternative to traditional dairy. They can be incorporated into cholesterol lowering diets and provide your body with essential minerals and healthy fats to nourish the body. I’m not really into buying store bought nut milks as most of the time they are loaded up with added vegetable oils and sugars that make them taste a little rancid and unpalatable. Walnut milk is easy to make and I love to combine mine with a hint of vanilla bean and cinnamon to make it extra delicious. Adding a few fresh dates before blending will create a caramel malty flavour that is the perfect base for milkshakes and any power smoothie. For a calcium boost I normally add a tablespoon of tahini (sesame seed paste) before blending and to pump up the protein I just throw in a tablespoon of natural protein powder.
