*BUDGET CONSCIOUS You can use 5 cups of water instead of the usual 4 cups to be more budget-conscious.

 

STORE WALNUTS in the freezer.  At a minimum, the fridge preserves the freshness of all those great volatile oils.  Always taste your walnuts before making anything – you will know when they are going rancid due to the bitter taste.

 

NO STRAINING: Soaked walnuts blended into milk become silky smooth, and super creamy in a high-speed blender.  Walnut milk does not need to be strained – so if you don’t like “bits” and don’t want to strain your plant, milk walnut milk & cashew milk is an excellent choice for you!

 

ADD 2tsp Prebiotic fibre: green banana flour, cassava flour, acacia fibre powder, tapioca fibre (not starch), chicory root powder, Jerusalem artichoke powder, mesquite powder, baobab powder   Prebiotic fibre passes through the small intestine and into the colon where it feeds our beneficial bacteria and helps colonise our gut.  The prebiotic fibre helps with plant milk fermentation.
