Super easy vegan cashew milk

When you forgot to buy plant based milk but you have cashews at home then this super quick 'recipe' will be right up your street. This recipe also doesn't have any hidden ingredients or additives, it's healthy and cheap to make. And today is world plant milk day! What better way to celebrate than with your own home-made cashew milk!

It tastes really great and it's an amazing natural alternative for soy milk and more than creamy enough for coffee. No soy beans had to die for this milk!

There is literally no preparation required. You don't even need to soak the cashews (to be honest it is still a riddle to me why people think they need to ever soak cashews, it doesn't add anything to it health-wise, nutritionally or taste-wise). And you know exactly what goes into your plantbased milk. No additives, no sugar, no soy (wouldn't be a problem for me though), just two pure ingredients.

Blend until it's silky smooth and then store it in a glass in the fridge for 2-3 days.

It tastes great in coffee or tea.

Or your muesli.

Put cashews and water into a high power blender (you can soak the cashews before if you like but I never do and I don't find it's ever necessary) and blend for about 1-2 minutes or until you have a completely silky smooth plant-based milk.

This home-made cashew milk is perfect for coffee, tea or muesli. It's a great and healthy plant-based replacement for milk. It can be made anytime when you need it.

That's it! Enjoy!
