Homemade Cashew Milk

Servings 5 servings
Author Rachael DeVaux


  • 1-2 cups raw cashews
  • 8 cups filtered water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder (or sub vanilla extract)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Soak cashews in 3 cups water in bowl or jar overnight (or about 12 hours) to soften.

  2. Once softened, strain cashews and discard water the cashews soaked in.

  3. Add cashews to high-powered blender (I prefer Vitamix), along with remaining water, vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt. Feel free to sweeten with a splash of maple syrup or honey, or a pitted date.

  4. Blend on high for 2-3 minutes. No need to strain cashew milk if nuts were able to soak for 12+ hours!!

  5. Pour cashew milk in milk jug or other storage jar and refrigerate. Lasts up to 4 days. Enjoy!
