So I know I just talked about how I’m including some high quality, pastured, full fat dairy in my diet again, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for non dairy milks.

While I do love me some raw cream or some grass fed cheese, I try not to overdo it on the cow’s milk and that’s where the non dairy milks, like this Cashew Milk come in handy. And I know some of you can’t do dairy at all, so I wanted to have something for everyone.

Cashew milk is great because as long as you have a pretty decent blender, you really don’t need to filter it through cheesecloth or a nut milk bag like you do with almond milk and most other nut milks.

This makes the cashew milk extra creamy and delicious. And the added pinch of salt plus a date or two just brings out the natural sweetness in the cashews and gives it a little pinch of flavor with no added sugar.

Homemade Cashew Milk
 
Prep time
Total time
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • Water to soak cashews
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1-2 dates
Instructions
  1. Place cashews in a bowl and cover with water. Allow to soak for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Pour cashews into a colander and rinse with water until it runs clear.
  3. Place cashews into high speed blender along with filtered water and blend on high for 60 seconds or until smooth. If you don't have a high speed blender you may want to pour cashew milk through cheesecloth or a nut milk bag to remove the pulp, but this is typically not necessary with a good blender.
  4. Add sea salt and dates to cashew milk in the blender and blend until smooth. Add more salt and/or dates depending on preference.
