Today I have prepared a super delicious raw-vegan walnut milk. Because I wanted it flavored, I added dates and vanilla.
- 200gr (7oz) of walnuts,
- 100gr (3.5oz) of seedless medjool dates,
- 1 liter (34oz) of filtered water,
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract,
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon powder.
Walnuts must be soaked in the water for 12 hours, dates for about 6 hours, each in a separate bowl.
The next day (because I prefer to let them soak overnight), all the ingredients are processed in a blender, adding also the sweet water left by the soaked dates. I prefer this high-performance blender because it grinds walnuts so well and I prefer not to squeeze the nut milk through a cheesecloth like many do, I like to drink it thicker with whole walnuts.
Serve it with cinnamon on top or with 2 teaspoons of carob powder to a 250ml (8.5oz) cup of nut milk. Put it in a bottle or glass jar (avoid plastic) and keep it in the fridge. I used a 1.8l (61oz) glass jar.
