Homemade cashew milk is incredibly creamy, refreshing and has a mild flavor. This version is naturally sweetened with maple syrup. For vanilla flavored cashew milk you can add a touch of vanilla extract. This quick recipe is made by simply whizzing together the ingredients in your blender until smooth and creamy. No straining is needed. Enjoy this refreshing and nutritious milk with cereal, granola, oatmeal, lattes or anywhere else you could use regular milk.
1. Add soaked cashews, water, maple syrup, vanilla extract (if using) and salt to a high-speed blender and blend on the highest speed for 1-2 minutes until milky and creamy. Taste and add more sweetener if desired.
2. Transfer the milk to a covered storage container and place in your refrigerator for up to four days.
• To soak the cashews, place one cup of raw cashews in a container and cover with water. Let them soak in a covered container in your refrigerator for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight. Drain and rinse before using. For a fast soaking method, soak in boiling water for 1-2 hours (the longer the better). Drain and rinse before using.
• For a creamier milk, you can use less water.
