Hello joyous reader, I'm excited to share a new recipe video with you!! You might have tried my homemade almond milk by now, if so, I hope you loved it and it's become a staple in your home rather than store-bought. I think that once most people make their own nut milks they realize just how much better it tastes.
Fortunately it's much healthier too because you probably aren't adding sodium chloride, carrageenan or any other preservatives or flavouring agents. Cashews are fast becoming a popular "nut" (although techincally they're not nuts; they're legumes!) to make into a milk.
You can't go into a juice bar these days without finding a cashew chocolate milk or cashew hemp milk for sale. Even though this is the preferred option to grocery store tetra-pak cashew milks, it will empty your wallet pretty quick if you drink it every day.
Making cashew milk at home is both cost-effective and super-yummy because you get to add whatever ingredients your heart desires!
I feel really good putting this nourishing creamy milk into bambina likes it too ;) My favourite ingredient to add to any nut milk is vanilla bean powder. Just be sure when purchasing this powder it does not have any additives or fillers. It's pretty common to see sugar added to vanilla bean powders and best avoided. You're sweet enough already!
I use Organic Traditions brand because it's made from certified organic vanilla bean, which means that it's totally pure. When you smell it, you'll know what I mean. It's also wonderful in baked goods too. I also added medjool dates (they were incredibly plump -- love that) because they add a natural sweetness to balance out the savoury "cashew-y" taste. Here's the recipe video and the recipe card below. Plus be sure to scroll right down so you find out the nutritional benefits of cashews.
Feel free to add one or all of the following to customize your perfect cashew milk flavour:
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tbsp raw cacao powder (or more if you want to create a chocolate milk)
