Walnuts are one of the best nuts to consume. They are an excellent source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 essential fatty acids, rich in antioxidants. Additionally, they are a great source of manganese and copper and biotin. They are one of the best nuts to consume for healthy hair from the inside out. So if you have hard time-consuming walnuts, why not try drinking it in the form of milk. See how I make my own homemade walnut milk.

The Key to Homemade Milk: The Nut Bag
Elle’s Best Nut Milk Bag is a large 12″ X 12″ commercial grade nut milk bag made of fine mesh nylon cheesecloth. It is reusable and functions perfectly as an all-purpose strainer and cold brew coffee filter. You can us the bag for many different things such as milk, juice tea, and cold brew coffee.
I absolutely love this nut milk bag. I have had a few other ones as I indicated in my pumpkin milk video and they have not lasted as long as this one. Having a quality nutmilk bags actually, saves you in the longer term by providing more product and a much creamier milk.

What To Do With The Left Over Pulp?
Now that the milk is removed you can store the remaining bag contents in the refrigerator and use in a variety of dishes such as cookies, pancakes, muffins and much more. I add it to my oatmeal to make it creamy and add extra protein. Likewise, you can just discard it. No shame in that!
