Yield: 2 cups, 4 servings

Cashew Milk is especially quick to make, as it does not need to be strained.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup soaked cashews
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Equipment

  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • blender
  • rubber spatula

Put the water, cashews, maple syrup, and optional vanilla extract in a blender. Process on high speed until smooth. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Cashew Milk will keep for 5 days. It tends to separate, so shake well before using.
