How to Make Cashew Milk

Cashew Milk

I LOVE nut milk... but I don't love how most nut milks sold in stores have added sweeteners, preservatives, and emulsifiers.  Plus, they can be expensive!  It's SO easy to make your own nut milk at home.  I like to make some on the weekends and store in mason jars to have throughout the week.  My favorite is cashew milk - since cashews are sweet and creamy.  You can swap out cashews for any other nut to make this recipe!  


Base ingredients

Optional ingredients:

  • 4 Tbsp Date Syrup***
  • 1 tsp Vanilla 
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon 


If you have a high speed blender (e.g., Vitamix or Blendech), just drop all of the ingredients into the blender and mix until combined.  If you don't have a high speed blender, soak nuts in water for 3+ hours to soften first, then combine all ingredients into a blender.  

Other important notes:

Most nut milk recipes suggest that you strain your nut milk through acheese cloth or thin towel to separate the pulp.  I prefer not to do that because: 1) I like my nut milk thicker, 2) don't want to waste the yummy nutrients in pulp!, and 3) it takes too long!.... so I skip this step.  But if you prefer it this way - first mix the Water + Nuts, strain, and then add all the other ingredients.
