Homemade Walnut Milk Recipe using Sharpham Park Organic Walnuts

Crafting your own walnut milk with Sharpham Park British organic walnuts is easy and rewarding. Begin by soaking the walnuts to enhance blending. Blend with fresh filtered water, then strain through a nut milk bag for a smooth, creamy consistency. Personalise with maple syrup and vanilla extract for a delightful flavour profile.

Walnut milk appeals to those with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies and is perfect for anyone embracing a plant-based lifestyle. Its versatility shines in both sweet and savoury dishes, providing a creamy base that complements various flavours.



  • 100g Sharpham Park British organic walnuts (about 1 cup)
  • 1 liter (4 cups) filtered water, divided
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup or agave syrup (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • Pinch of salt

Equipment Needed:

  • Blender
  • Nut milk bag or cheesecloth
  • Bowl
  • Airtight container for storing


  1. Soak the Walnuts:

    • Place the walnuts in a bowl and cover them with 500ml (2 cups) of filtered water. Let them soak overnight, or for at least 8 hours. This softens the walnuts and makes them easier to blend.

  2. Drain and Rinse:

    • After soaking, drain and rinse the walnuts thoroughly under cold water. This helps remove any bitterness.

  3. Blend:

    • In a blender, combine the soaked walnuts with 500ml (2 cups) of fresh filtered water. Blend on high for about 1-2 minutes until you get a smooth, creamy consistency.

  4. Strain the Milk:

    • Place a nut milk bag or a layer of cheesecloth over a bowl or jug. Pour the walnut mixture into the bag or cloth.

  5. Extract the Milk:

    • Gather the edges of the bag or cloth and twist close. Squeeze and press to extract as much walnut milk as possible. This may take a few minutes of gentle squeezing.

  6. Sweeten and Flavour (Optional):

    • If desired, pour the strained walnut milk back into the blender. Add maple syrup or agave syrup to taste, along with vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Blend briefly to combine.

  7. Store:

    • Pour the walnut milk into a clean, airtight container. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

  8. Serve:

    • Shake or stir the walnut milk before each use, as it may naturally separate over time. Use it in coffee, tea, cereal, smoothies, or any recipe that calls for milk.


  • Adjust Consistency: For a creamier milk, use less water when blending or strain less thoroughly.
  • Flavour Variations: Experiment with different sweeteners like dates or honey, or add spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg for a unique flavour.
  • Nutritional Benefits: Walnut milk is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and nutrients like manganese and copper.

Enjoy your homemade walnut milk as a delicious and nutritious plant-based alternative to dairy milk!
