  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water 4-8 hours, drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups water, divided
  1. Place the cashews and ¼ cup of water into the bowl of a food processor or blender.

  2. Blend the mixture to a smooth paste. This may take a few minutes. Stop the machine to scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally, and add a splash more water if you need it to get the mixture moving.

  3. Add the remaining water and blend again until smooth.

  4. Optional step: if your milk has a lot of cashew particles in it, you may strain it. Place a nut milk bag over a large container, such as a pitcher or bowl. Pour the milk into the bag and strain it, squeezing the bag with your hands to extract as much milk as possible.

  5. Serve immediately or chill in a sealed container for up to 5 days.

Recipe Notes
