So, making cashew milk is my latest obsession. Now, I've never been one to drink a glass of milk... I just can't do it (even soy or almond milk) so when I made this and couldn't stop gulping it down I knew I hit the jackpot of milks (weird phrase..). It's over the top creamy but not thick in a gross way, it tastes like heaven and is amazing added into oatmeal or on top of cereal.
Mine and Beck's favorite breakfast lately is bran flakes with this on top. We're a simple folk I suppose but it's like dessert or something!
It's super easy to make and is loaded with protein and healthy fats. Have you ever tried cashew milk? If you haven't, try this!
3 cups filtered water
1-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon and nutmeg
1. Combine all of the ingredients in the order listed into a high-speed blender
2. Starting on the lowest setting and working all the way to the highest setting blend the ingredients for 2 minutes.
*If you're not using a vitamix or something similar, you'll want to add a minute to the blending time and strain through a fine mesh strainer and cheesecloth.
I usually stick in in the fridge right away and drink within a couple a days. You can also heat it up and drink it warm.
