Homemade Cashew Milk

*This is my first video tutorial.  I promise they’ll get better 🙂

Homemade cashew milk is super easy and cost effective to make! The best part is you have complete control over every ingredient in your milk!  We use cashew milk as a 1 to 1 substitute for traditional milk in recipes.

In the video I made plain cashew milk using the following ingredients:
-1 cup unsalted cashews – soaked overnight and drained and rinsed
-4 cups water

I prepare it by:
*Soak cashews overnight, drain and rinse
*Blend with 4 cups water until no cashew pieces remain
*Strain through a cheese cloth or produce bag
*Chill

This makes a plain cashew milk.  If you wish to sweeten it, you can check out some of the options below:

Optional sweeteners:
– 2 – 3 dates (pits removed)
– Cinnamon
– 1 tsp vanilla extract

*The milk will stay good for about 4 or 5 days! Maybe a bit longer..I just always smell it and make sure it doesn’t smell sour – if it doesn’t you’re good to go!

Have you ever made your own milk? I’d love to hear about it!
