I have been dying to make cashew milk ever since I had it on my 3-day cleanse, and realized how deliciously creamy this protein-packed drink is. The steps are easy, and can be replicated from my almond milk post.

Homemade cashew milk

Soak your cashews overnight in water. Drain them the next day and place them in a blender.

Fill the blender with water so it just covers the cashews.

Blend on high speed until creamy. I then added in some vanilla bean for flavor by slicing the vanilla bean down the center, scooping out the seeds, and adding it to the mixture.

Strain the nut pulp through a fine sieve or cheesecloth. I had to strain the milk twice since some of the pulp got through the first time.

Vanilla cashew milk! I like to drink it cold like a milkshake, but you can use it like any dairy alternative. Enjoy!

    Can you tell me where you got that great bottle from?

  2. becca says:

    Hi Marla! I believe I got these bottles from a OneKingsLane.com flash sale, but often purchase them in stores like Ross, Michaels, or online Amazon.com or save-on-crafts.com. Hope that helps!

    Measurements? Cashews vs water ratios?

  4. becca says:

    Hi Laura,

    I used 2 cups of cashews. Soaked them overnight in water that covered them completely. When placing them in the blender, I do the same thing – fill it with water so it just covers the cashews. Hope that helps!
