Walnut Milk Health Benefits

This brainy little nut is the new best friend to your heart and head

While Walnut Milk perhaps doesn’t get the coverage of other Plant Milks, these days you’ll typically find it at the store right next to other dairy milk alternatives like Almond Milk and Oat Milk.

More importantly, Walnut Milk is creamy and flavorful, while also offering a range of health benefits. So whether you’re considering Walnut Milk as you take the first steps on your plant-based journey or are looking for something a little different from your usual Nut Milk, let’s dive in and see why people are going nutty about this amazing drink.

What’s in Walnut Milk?

We love Walnut Milk just as much for its taste as for its undeniable health benefits. Just as its hugely popular relative Almond Milk contains great vitamins and minerals, Walnut Milk offers its own series of dynamite healthy assets. Both serve as strong sources of Vitamin E, which is massively beneficial in maintaining healthy skin and immune system functionality.

Walnuts have always been considered brain food - pretty easy to remember since these little nuts look fairly cerebral! Polyunsaturated fat and polyphenols found in walnuts act as antioxidants within the body, combating inflammation and damage from oxidation in the brain. Walnuts also target high blood pressure, offer rich Omega-3 benefits, promote weight loss, are critically important for gut health, and can even help us age more gracefully (and who doesn't want to look younger longer?). Additionally, walnuts can help to cut down on extra snacking and curb those late-night cravings due to their ability to make the stomach feel fuller, longer.

When you help yourself to an Elmhurst Walnut Milk, you’re helping to make each of these distinctive health benefits your own.

From Walnuts to Walnut Milk

Most Nut Milks are made in the same way. You’ll find an excessively long ingredient list full of things like added sugars, thickeners, and other unnecessary additives. Long story short, you’re usually drinking 2% nuts and 98% unnecessary. You get none of the health benefits and will usually be left pretty underwhelmed by the flavor and texture, too.

At Elmhurstm our unique process, the HydroRelease™ method, helps us craft what most other Plant Milk brands cannot: a creamy, delicious product full of flavor and without potentially harmful, artificial ingredients. HydroRelease™ separates the nutritional components of the walnut using just water, which allows more of the nut, plus its flavor and nutritional value, to remain. We want you to receive the full health benefits of the walnut, and you’ll be getting 1400mg of Omega-3 and 3g of protein in each glass of Elmhurst Walnut Milk. You are guaranteed a delightfully nutty drink, and a healthy one at that!


The Walnut Milk Option

In order to enjoy all the health benefits of a plant-based diet, it’s important to know which nuts offer the best vitamins and minerals for your needs. If you’re after heart health and brain boosts, walnuts are for you. For those who aren’t wildly into snacking on raw walnuts, the versatility of our Walnut Milk gives you the opportunity to receive much of the same nutritional value. Substitute walnut milk for dairy milk to give your chocolate chip cookies a distinct, Omega-3 boost. Blend Walnut Milk into your smoothie for a protein boost. Drop it into soups, stir it into iced coffee, try it in your favorite recipe and enjoy complete confidence in the beneficial choices you’re making for your health.
