Homemade Cashew Milk

Have you ever looked at the ingredients in nut milks that you can buy in the supermarket?

If you haven’t, I recommend that you do the next time that you are in there. It is scary to think that there is only 2% of Almonds in an unsweetened Almond milk that I had been using in my cooking! Food companies catch on to something that is being promoted as healthy and then make their version – which doesn’t tend to be so healthy. It is really quite sad!

So, in my quest to my a diary free mushroom soup, I thought I would make cashew nut milk so that I could make it “creamy” without the cream. It is so easy to make and I shall be making this now on a regular basis for cooking and my smoothies.

Here is how easy it is to make:

You will need

  • 1 cup of cashew nuts
  • 3 cups of pure water to rinse nuts
  • 4 cups of pure water
  • 1 Measuring Cup
  • Sieve
  • Nutri-bullet and large container
  • Air tight container to store it in the fridge

How to make it

  1. Measure out 1 Measuring cup of Cashew Nuts and place into the NutriBullet container Cashew Milk Prep
  2. Add 3 cups of Pure water into the container and seep for 2 hours
  3. Rinse the soaked cashew nuts in cold water and return to the NutriBullet container
  4. Add 3 Cups of Pure Water and Blitz until smooth
  5. Add the remaining 1 Cup of Pure Water and place in an airtight container and keep in the fridge until you need it.Completed Cashew Nut Milk

This will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.

    That sounds like a great idea – the creaminess without the cream/extra calories or additives – all natural and only the nuts and water- sounds great and versatile too – probably costs less too!! – must give it a try.
