Cashew milk has become increasingly popular overseas, as an alternative to milk, and no doubt you’ve come across recipes using cashew milk for its creamy texture. Sadly, cashew milk is not readily available in South African stores, however the good news is that it’s easy to make it yourself!
Cashew milk can be substituted for milk or other non-dairy. Compared to almond milk, the taste of cashew milk is slightly less nutty, and sweeter, so the taste is a bit closer to the cow milk that you may be used to. It’s also creamier, so perfect for soups, smoothies, and a non-dairy latte!
Soak the cashews for 3-4 hours, and rinse. Add the nuts to the OmniBlend jug, and add half of the water. This is recommended to make sure you get a super smooth texture. Start blending on low speed, increasing to high speed, and blend for 1 minute. Add the remaining water, and blend again for a few seconds. That's it! Simple as that. Store in the fridge.
