Homemade Cashew Milk

Below is a quick video for a super quick and delicious plant-based cashew milk.  I personally prefer cashew milk because it's the creamiest and easiest to make of all the nut milks I have tried.  Cashews are nutrition powerhouses, loaded with manganese, potassium, copper, iron, fiber, B-vitamins, and protein!  

Recipe Below!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 4 cups water 
  • 2 tbs sweetener (I like agave or honey, maple syrup works too)
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Pinch spice: cocoa, cinnamon, (cayenne if you're a bit crazy) (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Soak the cashews over night submerged completely in water.  The next day drain and rinse cashews well. Add cashews, water, sweetener of choice, vanilla, sea salt, and other ingredients if desired to blender.  With less powerful blenders it might be good to half the water (add 2 cups at first) then slowly add the remaining two cups.  
  2. No need to strain, should be creamy and delicious! I like adding mine to smoothies, cereals, pancakes, or just drinking it plain!  Enjoy!
