Unsweetened Walnut Mylk

Unsweetened Walnut Mylk will be the perfect base for my Broccoli Walnut Soup!

I'm already soaking the nuts in the fridge right now!

Unsweetened Walnut Mylk

1 cup chopped walnuts, soaked for 2-3 hours (longer for whole walnuts)
4 cups filtered water

Drain and rinse walnuts.  Add walnuts and 4 cups filtered water in a Vitamix or blender.  Blend until smooth.  Strain through a fine strainer, cheese cloth or nut bag.  I use a strainer due to convenience.  Store in the fridge for up to 3 days.  However, if you're making soup or adding it to your morning oatmeal it'll be gone in no time!  

Walnuts is a good source of Omega 3s!  The Standard American Diet (aka SAD) is usually deficient in Omega 3s and too heavy on the Omega 6s.  Omega 3s reduces inflammation in the body and can aid in proper brain function.  Check out this link for more benefits for increasing your Omega 3s.

Tip for what to do with the nut is in a dehydrator until all the moisture is gone.  Place the walnut pieces in a food processor and process until a fine flour is achieved!  Wah-lah!  Walnut flour!!!
