DIY Cashew Milk

I made Almond Milk on the last day of class for my Plant Based Nutrition & Wellness Bootcamp at the Florida School of Holistic Living.  One of my students asked "can we make milk from cashews"?

Well, yes, you can make milk from any nut, seed or oats!  I've even heard from one of my friends that she makes Zucchini milk and I've not tried that yet.

I noticed on FaceBook last week that my student had posted a link to a cashew milk recipe with oats.  I decided to simplify the recipe and turned out as delicious as I expected.  If you need detailed steps on how to make nut milk, go to my older post on "How to Make Almond Milk".

The ingredients are as follows:
  • 1 cup Raw Cashew pieces (only use raw nuts when making milk!)
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract (you could use raw beans here too)
  • 1/2 tsp Organic Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp Agave
Have fun with it and enjoy!  Post in the comments section if you decide to give it a try and let me know what you think of the taste.  I think we might like it more than almond milk :)

Better than almond milk, eh? Will definitely try this soon!

Yes, and if you don't like the density, add 4 cups water instead of 3.
