Many raw food recipes call for cashew milk or another "nut milk" such as raw almond milk. Raw cashew milk is also delicious on its own. You can use it as a vegan milk substitute with a breakfast cereal or spiced with a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. If you'd like to try cashew milk as a non-dairy milk substitute, here's how to make raw cashew milk, suitable for vegans.
1/2 cup raw cashews
2 cups water, plus more for soaking
1 dash agave nectar, or another raw sweetener like maple syrup or honey
Gather the ingredients.
Cover raw cashews with water and allow to soak for at least 1 hour (more is better if you can wait a bit longer).
Drain and rinse.
Place soaked cashews and 2 cups water into a blender or food processor and process until smooth, at least 1 full minute.
Add a dash of raw sweetener such as agave nectar, to taste.
You can use more or less water to vary the thickness of your raw cashew milk, depending on your personal preference, but in general, you want a 1:4 ratio of cashews to water.
You may also choose to strain your raw cashew milk, depending on personal preference.
Store in a glass jar or other airtight container, refrigerated for up to one week.
