Homemade Strawberry Cashew Milk


Nut milk is a great alternative for those who may be wanting to reduce the amount of dairy they consume! Dairy-free is a popular health trend at the moment and what's great for dairy-free folks is that there are plenty of milk substitutes available at grocery stores. ​Like nut milk, rice milk, coconut milk, hemp milk and soy milk. ​I've been buying dairy-free milk for over 2 years now. But today I had a urge to make some nut milk of my own! I picked up some raw, unsalted organic cashews yesterday and decided to give it a go in my Vitamix. ​I made some strawberry cashew milk and cacao infused cashew milk! Let me tell you.. it was actually the best nut milk I have ever had and only took a few steps to make. ​Scroll below for the recipe!

​First off, using a Vitamix blender is definitely preferred! It can break down the cashew to absolutely nothing. There was not even 1/4 cup of pulp left over. The better your blender can breakdown the nuts - the higher the fiber content in the milk will be since less pulp will be going to waste!

​Second, I would definitely recommend using a proper nut milk bag to drain the liquid from the pulp. ​Mine looks like this. It's by SproutMaster!

Ingredients:

- 2 cups RAW, UNSALTED cashews ​- 6 cups of filtered water ​- 8-10 sliced strawberries ​- 1 1/2 tsp. raw cacao powder (not pictured) ​- 1 medjool date (pit removed) ​ ​- Pinch of sea salt (optional)

Recipe:

1. Soak cashews in a bowl with filtered water for 2-3 hours. This will help breakdown the nut better and increase the nutrient value.

2. Drain the cashews from the water and add them to a blender. ​3. Remove pit from medjool date & slice 8-10 organic strawberries and add both to the blender. ​4. Add 6 cups of filtered water, a pinch of sea salt and blend for 1-2 minutes until creamy consistency. ​5. Split the batch in half in 2 separate bowls. In one bowl whisk in 1 1/2 tsp of cacao powder for a strawberry-cacao infusion. (This step can be skipped if you prefer no cacao) ​6. Store batch or both batches in mason jars in the fridge. Nut milk can stay for up to 1 week in the fridge!
