About this recipe

Cashew milk is a fantastic, creamy alternative to traditional dairy milk. Whether you are lactose intolerant, vegan, or just looking to try something new, cashew milk is a super easy-to-make and very tasty option.

Unlike other nut milk, cashew milk has a natural sweetness and rich texture that makes it perfect for a variety of uses, from morning coffee to baking.

A large glass bottle on a kitchen countertop is being filled with cashew milk from a stream off-screen. The bottle is about a third full. In the background, a wooden cutting board and some small plants are visible against a tile backsplash, showcasing the easiest way to make your own nut milk at home.

Blend: Place the raw cashews in a high-speed blender with 4 cups of water. Blend high for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is completely smooth.

Add Flavorings (Optional): If you like, you can add a sweetener, a splash of vanilla extract, or a pinch of salt to taste. Blend again for another 30 seconds to incorporate.

Store: Pour the cashew milk into a glass jar or bottle and store it in the refrigerator.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO STRAIN CASHEW MILK

One of the best things about cashew milk is that you don’t have to strain it! Unlike almond milk, which often requires straining to remove the pulp, cashew milk blends so smoothly that you can skip this step entirely.

This makes the process quicker and easier and means you get all the nutrients and fiber from the whole cashews. So, you can enjoy a creamy, delicious milk with minimal effort and maximum health benefits.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Homemade cashew milk typically lasts about 3-4 days in the refrigerator. Since it doesn’t contain preservatives like store-bought versions, it’s best to make smaller batches that you can use up within a few days. Always shake it before using, as natural separation may occur. If you notice any sour smell or taste, it’s time to make a fresh batch.

HOW TO USE HOMEMADE CASHEW MILK IN RECIPES

Cashew milk is incredibly versatile and can be used in many recipes where you normally use dairy milk. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Smoothies: Add a splash of cashew milk to your morning smoothie for a creamy texture.
  • Coffee and Tea: Use it as a dairy-free creamer in your coffee or tea.
  • Baking: Substitute cashew milk for regular milk in your baking recipes for cookies, cakes, and muffins.
  • Savory Dishes: Cashew milk is used in soups, sauces, and pasta dishes to add a creamy touch.
  • Cereal and Oatmeal: Pour it over your favorite cereal or mix it into your oatmeal for a delicious breakfast.
