Have you Milked a Walnut Today?

Walnut Milk is quickly becoming one of my favorite raw vegan milks! It is so smooth and provides such a great buttery base for other smoothies, like the raw chocolate milkshake and holiday smoothie I have posted below. With almond flour and almond butter in so many recipes these days, I am really enjoying a break from almond milk, and instead drinking this simply satisfying walnut milk. And cheers to Walnuts being in season right now! At our local farms here in NW Oregon, you can get walnuts in the shell for $2.20 per pound, and then once cracked, you average around $4 per pound, which works out to about $1.25 per quart of this fabulous milk, or 25 cents a glass! So worth it!

  2. Why didn’t anyone else click “like…like…like!!!!” to this post?!!! Where is the LOVE button when you need it. I have a walnut tree on our property and usually I just crack them and eat them or attempt to grow more walnut trees (a hobby of mine…keeps me off the street…) but now I know what to do with them. You are a dead set genius. I bow to your genius ma’am. In fact…you are almost up there with my heroes, Mr A. Einstein and Mr Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall. Keep at it. Just threw you into my favourites…can’t be missing another amazing share like this!
