When I was a child, we would occasionaly run out of milk for cereal so we used water as a substitute instead. Not exactly a good substitute, but it was all we had so we made due. Now I know, if you just add soaked walnuts to that water you would actually have milk. Not just milk, but a healthy non-dairy alternative as well!
Nut milk is so fascinating to me! Who would believe that you can make a rich milk using walnuts?!? This morning as I was making homemade spelt waffles for my husband, I discovered that we didn't have any more store bought almond milk. So milk girl to the rescue! I used the following recipe but adjust as you see fit.
1 cup of soaked walnuts
(soak over night)
24 - 32 ounces ounces of water
(adjust to your desired creaminess)
5-6 pitted medjool dates
(optional: adds sweetness)
1 dash of sea salt
