…homemade cashew milk

26 10 2010

i’ve been drinking nut milk for about a year and a half, but don’t really ever drink it alone because it just doesn’t do regular milk justice…

however, this recipe changes that! it super easy too!

first soak raw cashews in water for at least an hour (the longer the better- up to 9 hours), and then drain out the old water.i usually eye ball adding 3 parts water to 1 part cashews, but you could add more or less depending on your taste. throw it in the blender, and add about a tablespoon of vanilla, and about a tablespoon of stevia (or you could use agave, or your sweetener of choice)…

i add about a pinch of salt just to intensify the flavor, and then just give it a whirl for about a minute.its going to be nice and thick (again you can add more water), and some people will strain out the nuts, but i leave em in there- i like the thicker texture and think it adds a little more protein. i keep it in the fridge for no more than 5 days… so good in smoothies, coffee, or just as a after dinner treat (i like it best ice cold)!!!

next up is almond milk… mmmm…
