Prep Time5 minsTotal Time4 hrs 10 mins

Instructions

1

The cashews must be softened. This is best done by soaking them in water overnight in the refrigerator. You can also boil them for about 10 minutes.

2

Drain the cashews and rinse them thoroughly, until the water runs clear.

3

Add the soaked cashews and two cups of water to a blender. Start low and increase the speed until the cashews are pulverized.

4

Blend in 2 more cups of water, the honey (or your sweetener of choice), vanilla extract (if you want to add flavor), and a pinch of sea salt. Most blenders will not fully breakdown the cashews. Simply strain the milk through a sieve, reserving the liquid.

5

Store the milk in a covered container in the refrigerator. It will last up to 4 days. It’s common for homemade cashew milk to separate. Just give it a good shake before using it.

6

You can freeze it to extend the life, but it might get a weird texture, which can easily be fixed by running it in the blender again.
