Cashew Milk So Good, You'll Forget Almond Milk Even Exists

If only I had known how simple it was to make nondairy milk, I would have started making it a long time ago.

I drink this luscious milk on days I don’t have time for breakfast and add it to smoothies and any raw dessert that calls for milk.

Serves 6


  • ½ cup raw cashews (soaked 2 hours)
  • 5 Medjool dates
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 vanilla bean pod, scraped (optional)
  • 2 cups water
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • dash of salt


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for 2 minutes. Serve and enjoy, or seal in airtight mason jars in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Helpful Hint: A little nutmeg and cinnamon in this drink go a long way, so use sparingly.
