How To Make Cashew Milk
Each ingredient serves a substantial benefit in this recipe:
- Raw cashews, contrary to the belief that it causes weight gain, actually promotes heart health and prevents blood disease.
- The maple syrup gives the milk sweetness and texture and serves as a healthier alternative to sugar.
- The vanilla also gives the recipe a refreshing sweetness and is free from unnatural preservatives.
- The Himalayan pink salt provides a dash of additional flavor while giving the body its needed electrolytes.
Simply mix the ingredients all into a blender and start blending at the lowest speed, increasing intervals/speed for 1-2 minutes.
Next, just pour the mixture through a fine strainer, cheesecloth, or filtration bag into a mason jar or airtight container.
Finally, place the container in the refrigerator to chill for up to three days!
