Hi Friends,

Today we are making Raw Vegan Cashew Milk. I've been dying to try to make nut milks for a while, since regular milk just doesn't rub my stomach the right way. 

Why did I choose cashew milk instead of almond milk, you ask?? Because I don't have to strain cashew milk true cheesecloth. I plan on tackling almond milk next week, so stay tuned for that recipe. 

As mentioned before, regular cows milk just doesn't rub my tummy the right way. It tastes yummy going in, but it gives me the worst gas I've ever smelt coming out. Since I live with my boyfriend I pay attention to foods that make me gassy and milk is on the top of that list. 

I use almond milk in my smoothies every morning, but I'm getting tired of purchasing it every week. Why not make it myself?

Raw Vegan Cashew Milk


1/2 cup raw cashews
Water
Sweetener - raw maple syrup grade b, agave nectar or honey
Dash of sea salt
Dash of Cinnamon 

Cover raw cashew with water and allow to soak for at least 1 hour (more is better if you have the time)


Drain and rinse




Place soaked cashews and 2 cups water into blender or food processor and process until smooth, at least one full minute

Add a dash of raw sweetener to taste ,I used honey

You can use more or less water to vary the thickness of your raw cashew milk depending on your personal preference
In general you want a 1:4 ratio of cashews to water

You can also strain your milk but you really don't need to


This stuff tastes great!! I'm never buying nut milk again. 


I got this cool bottles and chalk board labels from Cost Plus World Market, only $5.99. I plan on using it for a while. 


That's All Today Folks
Blessings
