Fresh Cashew Milk

Prep Time: 12 hr
Cook Time: 10 min
Total Time: 12 hr 10 min
Ingredients
  1. 2 cups raw cashews
  2. 6 cups filtered water + more for soaking the cashews
  3. 2 tablespoons maple syrup (optional)
  4. splash of vanilla extract (optional)
  5. pinch of sea salt (optional)
Instructions
  1. First, place your cashews in a jar with a lid, fill it with water, and let them soak overnight in your fridge.
  2. When your cashews are ready, drain and discard the liquid that they were soaking in.
  3. Place the soaked cashews in your blender along with 6 cups of filtered water.
  4. If you’re making the sweetened vanilla version, add the maple syrup (agave or honey works too) and vanilla now.
  5. If you want unsweetened, just leave out the maple syrup and sea salt.
  6. Blend until everything is completely liquid and combined.
  7. Place your nut milk bag inside a bowl. I really like using a bowl with a spout because then it’s easier to pour the liquid when it’s done draining.
  8. Hold the nut milk bag over the bowl and squeeze the liquid out into the bowl.
  9. The pulp will be left behind in the bag which you can either discard or save for another recipe.
  10. Store your homemade cashew milk in an airtight container in your fridge until you’re ready to drink it.
  11. The milk may separate, just give it a shake when you’re ready to drink up!

    How long will it last in the fridge?

      Nut milks typically last 3-5 days in the fridge. To help maintain freshness we recommend soaking the nuts in the fridge and not over soaking them! Also, using a good air-tight container helps them stay fresh longer.

    I use 3/4 cup of nuts and 4 cups of water. Very good. Organic raw cashews are a little expensive!
