I love making my own nut and seed milk, I have found it cuts down on the amount of waste we are producing in a very big way, and by doing so I can avoid some of the added ingredients I am not fond of in pre-packaged milk (carrageenan, I am looking at you!) I have tried a variety of different nuts and seeds, including a recent foray into homemade oat milk. I have been curious about walnuts, it’s not a variety of nuts I would think of immediately for milk, but the neutral flavour lends itself nicely to a latte. I have added some cinnamon and sugar to this recipe, it adds a hint of sweetness and flavour but you are welcome to add a bit more of each if you want to bump the flavour and sweetness up a bit. This recipe is delicious paired with my Cinnamon Apple Ginger Granola.
Cinnamon Sugar Walnut Milk
1 cup walnuts, soaked overnight
4 cups filtered water
3 Tbsp coconut sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
Add soaked walnuts to a high speed blender along with 4 cups filtered water, coconut sugar, and cinnamon. Process until smooth and pass through a nut milk bag. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for a couple of days.
