Smooth, creamy and naturally sweet, this dairy-free Cashew Milk recipe is a fantastic milk substitute. It’s also super easy to make. Unlike my almond milk recipe, and other nut milk recipes, it does not require a nut milk bag. To make it, you simply whip it up in the blender. There is no need to strain out the pulp. Because it’s so easy to make, this dairy-free milk is one of my all-time favorites!
- Discard soaking water and rinse cashews thoroughly until water runs clear
- Place cashews, (3-4 cups fresh) water, and salt in a vitamix
- Process on high speed 20-30 seconds
- Store in glass mason jar in refrigerator
This cashew milk has the viscosity of regular whole milk. If you want to make milk with the consistency of 2% cow milk, add another cup of water. To make this into half and half (perfect in my Dandelion Coffee recipe), use only 2 cups water. Cashew milk can be very foamy when first removed from the Vitamix. It will settle nicely after sitting in the fridge overnight.
Dairy-free Cashew Milk is amazing served with any of these healthy paleo drink recipes:
