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?

Hi Kimberly, it is not necessary to soak the cashews in this recipe

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?

Thanks Rawtarian for this recipe! It is so easy to make. I am now switching from store bought non dairy milk to homemade nut milk because of The Food Revolution summit and your recipe I found online. So glad it was so easy. Thanks!

Have you frozen the cashew milk? Tips?

Nope, never done it myself. Never frozen any nut milk actually!

Anyone else done this? My gut feeling is it would be okay, but would probably need to be reblended again before using.

Just portion out your cashew milk, don't drink it all at once! :)

The recipe makes 8 servings. Did you drink it all at once? :) It is 115 calories per 4 oz serving. An 8 oz serving is still only 230 calories.

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!
