Recipe Directions

  • 1. Blend the cashews and water in a high-speed blender. I use my VitaMix blender, which is the best blender in the world! Blend very well so that the liquid resembles a thin milk.
  • 2. Add the remaining raw cashew milk recipe ingredients and blend again.
  • 3. Drink this delicious raw cashew milk recipe and experience heavenly bliss! As mentioned above, your raw cashew milk can be drunk straight, or served as a milk substitute in cereals and other recipes.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw cashew milk recipes do not come close to this sweet, almondy cinnamony raw cashew milk recipe.

Raw cashew milk can be used for many many purposes in your raw food lifestyle.

I tend to drink this cashew milk as a delicious sweet treat, perhaps as a dessert, or I serve it over home-made dry cereal or I even splash a 1/4 cup on top of a bowl of my raw oatmeal.

If you have all these ingredients on hand this recipe really only takes a minute to prepare. Cashew milk can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days, but I would reblend before serving it in case any ingredients settle. But a batch of raw cashew milk doesn't last long in my house anyway!

PS: If you have any left over raw cashew milk from this recipe, try making raw chia seed pudding with your raw cashew milk recipe.

Please let me know how you like this recipe and any ideas of how you like to use this raw cashew milk recipe.

I was wondering if it is necessary to soak the cashews? I've tried a few different nut milk recipes that require soaking the nuts, so I just wasn't sure if it made a difference or not?

How long should I soak cashews or almonds (and in what) before blending? Would it soften them enough for a blender not as strong as the Vitamix?

Just made the yummy cashew milk! Outstanding recipe and so easy! We were horrified to discover the carcinogens in organic non dairy milk products: carrageenan, xanthan & guar gum.....so happy to be able to make our own! Been vegan 5 years after my husband was diagnosed by a rare, aggressive cancer. He had a 6 month lifetime expectancy and we became vegan the day he received his diagnosis...Five years later and cancer free and we just did a 60 day juice fast...want to take our health to the next level so we found your website and we are so happy! Thank you!!

This is so yummy I could drink it all by itself. I cut the honey in half. Much better than the almond and coconut milk I've been using for a while.

Hi Laura,

Can the Raw Cashew milk be kept and consumed beyond 4 days? I love this milk< but because I'm trying to loose weight by restricting my carb/fat/protein/sugar intake, it is taking me a bit longer to consume before 4 days.

Hi Yvette, It will go a little sour after 4 days. Perhaps a better idea in your case is to reduce the recipe size by half. Hope this helps!

I have a cheap blender and the cashew milk started to foam at the top, is that normal?? Next time I will omit the cinnamon since I am not a cinnamon person, but taste pretty good! I have to get used to the taste as I am avid almond milk drinker.

Kinda normal :) You can strain that off if you like - even using a spoon!

Amber's Review

Raw cashew milk recipe

1 out of 5

I have a regular/crappy blender and it did not blend the cashews well enough. It tasted pretty good, that is why I commented above, however, after a few hours in the fridge, the milk clumped up. I even gave it a good shake, but clumpy pieces and the intense cinnamon flavor turned me off, so I discarded the whole thing. It is a shame that this is my first recipe and it is a fail.

I really want to try your mayo recipe, but could I use a food processor instead of my blender since my blender won't blend the cashews well enough??

Peace, Love and positive thoughts,
~Amber

Amber, are you sure you didn't put too much cinnamon in -like maybe a tablespoon instead of a tsp? cinnamon makes things clump up and it would make for an intense flavor... I would try it again with just cashews and milk and maybe agave and see if it does the same thing! good luck!

and one other thing :)... you should consider getting a vitamix or something like that... they are amazing and last for literally years! -esp if you are making things like cashew milk and other fun things! a great investment! -or ask for it for xmas! :)
-also the reason why I know about the cinnamon, is once I added a lot of it to my coffee ... and then it sat for a while... when I drank the coffee again, it was disgusting! thick and clumpy and the texture was so bad I couldn't drink it.

Hi Amber.

I'm sorry that the cashew milk wasn't a success for you. It does sound like you didn't blend enough, or your blender isn't very powerful so it was still too chunky.

Re: mayo, it won't work very well in the FP - it will be too chunky. Best to look for different styles of recipes that work with the equipment that you do have.

Hope this helps!

I am looking for milk for ranch dressing. Do you think this would work if I deleted the vanilla and cinnamon? Will the milk last longer in a dressing or still only three days? Thank you. (I always thought you had to soak nuts before making milk)
