Cashew Milk – The Milky Way

Have you ever seen a cashew tree or wondered where cashews come from? I made some delicious nut milk today and realized I didn’t even know what a cashew tree looked like.

Native to Brazil, these beautiful nuts also grow in India and Africa and the trees produce a pear-like apple which bears this gorgeous nut.

As easy as making a smoothie (actually easier) and is cheaper than store-bought and so rewarding to make.

Cashew milk is rich in magnesium, high in protein and is a good source of healthy fats.

It tastes…

Creamy, cool, smooth and delicious.

Ingredients: makes a single serving

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp cashews (about 18)
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 ice cubes

Make it like so…

  1. Combine all ingredients in a Magic Bullet or blender and blend until smooth (about 20-30 seconds)
  2. Option to strain nut/seed pulp or serve as is.
  3. Refrigerate any unused milk for up to 3 days.
