How do you make homemade cashew milk?

First off, invest in a nut milk bag (affiliate link)!! Yes, it’s an affiliate link, but I only endorse products that I use and truly, truly LOVE. This bag seriously changed my life. Like I said, I’ve been making this nut milk for a long time, and multiple times per week. Even though I previously thought I had mastered the method to get the creamiest milk possible, boy was I wrong.

This nut milk bag, again, LIFE CHANGING. Plus, it’s really simple to use. After blending your cashews and water to make your milk, place the nut milk bag inside your pitcher or jug. Then pour the milk inside, lift the bag, pull the drawstring to seal the top and avoid spills and gently squeeze the milk through. It will pass through the bag fairly quickly, and I promise this is a step you do NOT want to skip. Look at all that pulp that is NOT in my cashew milk!!

Like I said, I make this cashew milk multiple times per week, because I enjoy it in my coffee, and my two boys love to drink it, so it doesn’t last long in my house. All this time though, there was often an unpleasant grittiness in the milk that I kept ignoring because I still loved the taste. Well, no more grittiness or residue now with this truly amazing nut milk bag!
