Making nut milks at home is something that so many people (including myself) have deemed too complicated or requiring too much effort. I mean, why make your own when you can just buy all the non-dairy milks at the grocery stores these days?
Umm, well because this might even be easier than buying it in the store, bringing it home, and popping off that tab that annoys me for no specific reason. No annoying tabs with this EASY, SO INCREDIBLY EASY, cashew milk. Also - unlike a lot of the store bought milks, this isn't just watered down nut milk with preservatives and other ingredients added in.
Actually, you will only need literally 2 ingredients - cashews and water. And water doesn't even usually count as an ingredient. I suppose you might add a pinch of salt like I suggest, but come on - cashews, water, and salt. Is this too good to be true?
You'll just need a high-speed blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec or even a NutriBullet would probably work great.
You WON'T need a nut milk bag like you would if we were making almond milk. No straining required. Just blend. That's truly it.
Also, of all the non-dairy milks I've ever had or made, I still think cashew is the best. It's so creamy, and you can decide how thick you want it. You can tinker with the ratio and use it to replace a cream in soups and other recipes.
Be mindful that this cashew milk won't last as long as it's store bought counterparts. I would say one week tops, but I am always careful to make only the amount that I know I will consume within a few days.
Makes about 18 oz.
