How to Make Walnut Milk
This Walnut milk is packed with anti-inflammatory omega-3 essential fatty acids, in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Walnuts are also rich in antioxidants, including being a very good source of manganese and copper. They are also a good source of molybdenum and the B vitamin biotin. So drink up and be well nourished. Check out my recipe for making Almond milk also!

How to make Walnut Milk
I love homemade nut and seed milks! I'm going to tell you how to make Walnut Milk and you aren't going to believe how easy it is and how tasty these alternative milks are! You will need a good blender though, I prefer the Blendtec.
Servings: 2 cups
- 1 cup of walnuts
- 3 cups of filtered water divided
- 1-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- Rinse the walnuts and then place in a glass dish or jar with about 1cup of filtered water. Let soak for an hour, then pour out the water and rinse again.
- Pour in the remaining 2 cups of water and allow the walnuts to soak in this for 12 to 24 hours, refrigerated.
- Blend the refrigerated walnut/water mixture until it is as fine as your blender will make it, this is typically less than one minute in our Blendtec.
- Use a nut milk bag or cheese cloth to strain pulp out of the milk. (We save the pulp, freeze it in ice cube trays and use it in waffles and pancakes, makes for no waste and a fantastic bonus ingredient). The walnut milk should keep well for about 5 days when kept refrigerated in a sealed container. Give it a quick shake or stir before pouring and enjoy.

I have tried coconut, almond and cashew milk. I have never heard of walnut milk.
Tina, it’s fun to experiment with new plant milks. I have access to lots of walnuts so….why not walnut milk?
Very interesting, I had no idea you could make walnut milk! My son drank almond and sometimes cashew milk when he was younger, it’s delicious! I will have to try this sometime, thanks for sharing!
Sounds like a very yummy alternative to cow’s milk. I really would like to try this in the near future.
I love nut milks! You have to try them all and see which one you prefer. They are all good…I do have my favorites 🙂
