  • Blender
  • Mason Jar


  • 1 cup walnuts
  • Water
  • pinch real salt optional
  • drop vanilla extract optional


  • Put walnuts in a mason jar, making sure they have room to nearly double in size. Fill with water covering nuts. Cover and let sit for 8-12 hours
  • Drain nuts and add to blender. Add an equal volume of water as soaked walnuts.
  • Blend until smooth on the puree setting, about 1 minute
  • Strain through nut milk bag
  • Optionally add salt and vanilla and store it in a mason jar for future use.



To measure the volume of water, notice the height of the soaked walnuts on the mason jar. Then add water to the same level in the same mason jar.
