This Easy Homemade Walnut Milk is ridiculously smooth, creamy and delicious… and so much better than anything you’re going to find at the store!
Walnut milk actually isn’t that easy to find in stores. I’m not sure why, but it hasn’t exactly caught up with it’s almond milk and pecan milk counterparts, which are now pretty easy to find thanks to brands like The New Barn and Malk (those are the only ones I’ll buy!).
I love that there are awesome options like these brands for when I need something quick, but 99% of the time, I’d rather make my own!
If you have a blender and a few pantry staples, you’re well on your way to having a nondairy milk that is so much better than those gum filled ‘milks’ at the store.
I never thought I would be someone who makes their own nut milk, but when I did the Whole30 it opened my eyes to unnecessary ingredients and my slight dairy sensitivity.
While I haven’t sworn off dairy completely, I eat it in minimal amounts because it can bother my stomach.
When I did Whole30 I wasn’t interested in drinking black coffee, so I knew I needed an alternative.
I came up with this Whole30 Almond Milk simply because I didn’t want to spend a fortune on nut milk… but then I wanted to make it with other things besides almonds!
How to Make Walnut Milk

Now, I actually prefer this easy homemade walnut milk in my coffee versus anything from the store or milk from any other type of nut.
It’s creamy, smooth, and has almost no taste. I personally feel as if walnuts have a very earthy taste, but I think they lose most of that when you soak them!
