We love finding easy ways to reduce our grocery spending, and making your own nut milk at home is definitely one of them! This super easy (and crazy delicious!) Cashew Milk recipe is one of our favorites and we are pretty sure you will love it too. You will only need a few ingredients and some very simple steps. Ready to jump on the “make your own plant-based milks” train? Let’s do it!
If you think you absolutely need to own a fancy high-speed blender in order to try your luck at homemade nut milks, we are happy to report you’re wrong. If you own a regular blender, you can achieve creamy and delicious Cashew Milk, all the same, the only difference is the time you’ll have to blend it for. Make sure you blend until the mixture is smooth and there are no big cashew chunks, and the rest of the process will be exactly the same.
How to Store My Homemade Cashew Milk
So once you have nailed making your own creamy and silky smooth Cashew Milk, how do you store it? This is an equally important part of the process since you want to be able to use it for as long as possible and keep that amazing consistency for when you use it.
We highly recommend storing it in glass bottles in your refrigerator. Make sure you give an energetic shake before using to avoid separation, it will last for about 3 days. Making it is so easy, you can whip up another batch as soon as you hit the expiration date.
Using your Creamy Cashew Milk
There are infinite ways you can use your homemade cashew milk! One of our favorites is to make a delicious cup of frothy hot chocolate (or coffee if you drink it!), it is absolutely delightful! If you are an avid baker, you can use it on your usual recipes or it can be a great addition to your go-to plant-based pancake recipe. Needless to say, this sweet milk would make any smoothie better, especially those with cacao or peanut butter.
Trust us, you’ll find a million uses for this amazing DIY plant milk and we would be thrilled to hear about your best tips!
