if you liked the first recipe posted on BE WELL, almond milk, you will definitely love this walnut milk! this recipe can be made with cashews, hemp hearts & whatever else you can dream up. AND you don't even have to strain it!

i made this one a bit on the sweeter side, so feel free to tone down the dates & maple syrup if you like.

what you need:

1C walnuts (soak overnight or for a couple hours if you can, but not necessary)

4C water

4 pitted medjool dates

1t good maple syrup

1/2t vanilla

few dashes of cinnamon

pinch of sea salt

what to do:

blend all ingredients together in a high-speed blender (vitamix, blendtec, etc work well)

that's it!

use in cereal, oatmeal, sip it, etc.

store the rest in an airtight container in the fridge. it will naturally separate, so just give it a good shake before using.

makes 40oz
5 minutes
fridge life 3-5 days
