Why buy cashew milk from a store when you can make it yourself?
In stores, dairy-free milk can be expensive but it’s incredibly easy to make at home!
Plus, when you make your own nut milk you can leave out the excessive salt, gums or anything else you can’t pronounce.
Cashew milk is one of the easiest nut milks to make at home because it doesn’t need to be strained!
The soaked cashews are so creamy that if it were filtered through a nut milk bag, all that would be left is a mere spoonful of soft cashew cream.
The nut pulp really just makes the milk extra thick and creamy!
So, pick up some unsalted cashews next time you’re at the grocery store and you’ll be one step closer to having freshly made nut milk ready in your fridge!
