There's a new milk in town, and its got one impressive following. Making it yourself is easy (we promise) - cashews are soft and don't require a long soak time, or even straining.
Though its been popping up in grocery stores everywhere, commercial brands are filled with thickeners and other not-so-nice additives. Who wants to drink that?
Ready for a creamy, dreamy treat, sans the rubbish? 3 simple ingredients get you there...
1 cup raw, unsalted cashews
4 cups filtered water (divided; 2 for step 1, 2 for step 2)
A pinch (or two) of Himalayan pink salt
*Add a dash of vanilla extract for a hint of sweetness without sugar.
1. Soak cashews with 2 cups filtered water in a glass bowl for at least 10 minutes, or up to 12 hours.
2. Drain cashews & place in a blender with 2 cups filtered water.
3. Blend on low first, then high for a few minutes. Add in salt - blend to taste.
5. Pour into a glass container and store in the fridge for up to 4 days - if it lasts that long!
