I’m not sure why it took me so long to make this, but I’m so glad I finally did. Even my extremely picky toddler happily drank some of this delicious milk before taking his nap today! I actually think he didn’t even notice it was different!! Or if he did, he didn’t let on. This easy homemade cashew milk didn’t get its name for nothing. It truly is SO easy to make!
I really don’t know why I was so intimidated? It only requires TWO ingredients, plus an optional third. Just soak the cashews overnight. Then, the next day, throw the ingredients into your blender and give it a whirl. The result is beautifully creamy dairy free milk.
If you forget to soak the cashews, no worries! Just use the quick soak method. Boil some water and pour the boiling water over your cashews. Let it soak for about an hour and then drain and make your milk.
I make this cashew milk multiple times per week!
So I’ve REALLY played with this recipe quite a bit. As a result, I’ve found truly the BEST method for creamy milk without any cashew residue. Plus, no need to drain your milk once blended, as long as you follow my instructions. Blend your cashews at first, using only one of the four cups of water for about one full minute. I know it will be tempting to just throw all of the water in and blend, but please don’t! When the mixture is completely pureed, you will have a very thick and creamy result. Only then add the remaining water to thin out the mixture into a milk consistency. What this does is ensure you don’t have pieces of cashews floating in your milk that require draining. It really saves you a step later. Plus, there’s no waste!
