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.

Cashew Cream: Decrease the water to 1 cup. Cashew cream makes a good substitute for dairy cream in coffee or tea.

Chocolate Cashew Milk: Add 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and an additional 2 1/2 teaspoons of maple syrup.

How big is the per serving size; cup, tablespoon ?  Also is the fat content listed (8g) referring to monounsaturated or another type?
Thank you,
Lesley

Hi Lesley,

Each serving is 1/2 cup (the yield says 2 cups, 4 servings). The fat is nearly all monounsaturated.
