Health Benefits of Flaxseed Milk Walnut Milk:

Flaxseed has a number of health benefits. Some of the most significant health benefits are:

  • Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which improves heart health.
  • Reduces the risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and stroke.
  • Rich in fiber.
  • A significant source of antioxidant and lignans.
  • Protective effect against cancerous cell growth.

Walnuts have some tremendous health benefits too. Some of them are:

  • Rich source of Omega-3 fatty acid and good fats.
  • High level of vitamin E per serving.
  • Significant source of calcium and other minerals.
  • Low in GI.
  • Positive effects on cardiovascular health and blood pressure.
  • Beneficial for people with type-2 diabetes due to better fat composition.
  • Helps reducing problems associated with metabolic syndrome.

While walnut milk is rich in protein and good fats, flax milk doesn’t provide any protein. This low-carb milk is thus a good low-calorie milk for calorie watchers.

Flaxseed Milk Walnut Milk Recipe:

Making these flaxseed milk walnut milk is really simple. All you need is some good quality nuts and seeds and some water, and a good blender. If you have a high-speed blender, then your nut and seed milks are going to be smooth and rich. Cheese or muslin cloth or nut milk bag is the only other thing you will need here. Straining is after all one important step in nut milk and seed milk recipe.
I was recently introduced to flax milk. After trying some flax kefir, I started thinking to try flax milk. However, I didn’t find the plain flax milk very appetizing for my palate. On the other hand, the vanilla flavored flax milk is surprisingly good.

Walnut milk, in contrast, is really my kind of thing. Rich nutty taste and it’s a good thick and creamy milk perfect for any nut milk lover. That’s why I never add any flavors to walnut milk. Just plain simple walnut milk is perfect for me. If you choose to add some flavor to it, consider adding vanilla extract, medjool dates, rose extract and even cinnamon.
