Its amazing when you think of the fact that almost any nut and grain can make a super delicious milk. The combinations are limitless and it is totally impossible to be bored on a whole food plant based diet. I’m serious. I was experimenting in the kitchen (my favorite laboratory) and made this rice walnut milk. It tasted so good. You really have to try this. If there are issues with nut allergies just leave out the walnut. Its that simple. I found that the walnuts added more body to the milk and gave it a great flavor. Walnuts are a super food. They are high in linoleic acid which helps lower cholesterol, help in nerve formation and building up of antibodies. It also has loads of omega 3 fatty acids. The same kind found in fish. This also reduces cholesterol and reduces inflammation. Walnuts have significant protein and vitamin B. They are good sources of trace elements like zinc copper and manganese. So if you aren’t a walnut eater its time to rethink that one. Adding walnuts to your rice milk makes this a power drink and it easily replaces cows milk in any recipe. Enjoy!
