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 didn't. As long as you have a high quality blender, (Vitamix or Blendtec) you should not need to do so.

Hi folks, if you are having problems with your cashew milk staying fresh, using sterilized glass containers with air-tight lids should help.

DW made Cashew milk Thursday last, yesterday (Saturday, approx. 60 hrs), it had gone thick & stringy, like it had polymerized (consistency of a stretchy dough, but still 'pourable'). Still tasted good, but probably not keeping it 'til we hear from more people. 3cups wate to one cup nuts, she maintains nuts were fresh...anybody?

Weird! My cashew milk doesn't do that.

Probably best to toss it out (sorry for delayed response!)

Laura-Jane, do you drink soy milk ? I am very worried about the high fat content in using so much nut products, do you have any other suggestions or helpful hints??

No, I do not drink soy milk. In fact, I don't drink much "milk" at all. My daily diet doesn't really call for it, nor do I miss having a milk-like drink. When I do want some, I drink cashew milk, but that's very rarely--perhaps once every 2 months.

I agree that it's good to be concerned about too many nuts. However, some nuts in your diet is a good thing! It's all about picking and choosing how you want to incorporate them.

I generally don't have any nuts in breakfast or lunch at all, but I do tend to have some nuts during dinner and for dessert.

What do you need "milk" for?

Hi! Since you don't drink milk, which foods do you eat to make sure you're getting calcium?

The cashew milk looks delicious thank for the recipe!

Thank you!

HI there,
I have a 15month old daughter who I think is allergic to cows milk! She comes out in a rash on her face. I certainly dont drink cows milk, so am wondering why I give it to my daughter.
What do you know about giving nut milks to young children? I have heard that nuts are hard to break down in little bodies, but im guessing soaking the nuts would help this process?
Any info would be great! :)

Hi Mel! I don't know very much about it.

However, you should definitely check out a woman, "Shazzie." She has a ton of info about raising her daughter, Eva, raw.
