Vanilla Cashew Milk (Dairy Free, Sugar Free & Vegan)

creamy, cashew, milk, dairy free, vegan, sugar free, vanilla, stevia

We drink a lot of almond milk around here. I make my Strawberry Almond Milk recipe quite often. And while we love it, sometimes it’s good to change things up. Homemade Cashew Milk is a wonderful alternative to almond milk that is creamy, delicious and equally good for you. Cashews are rich in copper, iron, magnesium and protein.

 Add to Vitamix or Blender:

2 cups cashews, soaked in water for 8 hours (and then drained)

7 cups filtered water

15 drops liquid vanilla stevia

1 1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract

pinch of sea salt

Blend on high for 2 minutes. Place hand on top of lid when blending as the container will be quite full.

Place a nut milk bag (or cheesecloth) over a glass container and pour milk through bag, allowing the milk to pour into the storage container. Place container in fridge and drink within 2-3 days.

Please Note: With cashew milk you don’t need to use a nut bag as cashews blend up very well into the mixture and leave very little pulp. Yet, I still run the milk through a nut milk bag one time to remove the small particles and ensure the texture is completely smooth.

Makes 8 servings.

  1. “With cashew milk you don’t need to use a nut bag”  This is one of the reasons I love cashew milk!  Super duper easy.  Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Been wanting to give making my own nut milk a shot now that I have a Vitamix.  Thought I’d start with cashew milk.  This sounds yummy!  Have you tried it with out the stevia?  I am right smack in the middle of the Whole30 so I’d have to do without it.  Just wondering how you like it if you’d had it without.

    • @coconutmama I have tried it without stevia. Still delicious and creamy! When you are off the Whole30, a treat is to add a couple of dates to the milk as well 🙂

  3. Oh wow. I just made almond milk tonight. But I’m peeling myself up off this couch to soak cashews so I can make this recipe tomorrow! I’ve never had cashew MILK but I’m imagining how creamy it will be!!
