Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a fantastic milk replacement that tastes great and you can make it quickly!  Cashews have a rich and buttery taste that is extremely enjoyable and this milk takes that same flavor and puts it into a refreshing drink.

This is a great alternative to almond milk and you don’t need to strain the mixtures like you do in almond milk in order to remove the almond skin.  With cashew milk it is as easy as blending cashews and water.

Cashews are a rich source of copper, zinc and magnesium which help to improve the skin, blood vessels and brain.  You can enjoy this recipe with some great coconut fudge brownies or some cashew cookies.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. Is the 4 cups of water used in soaking the cashew and in the final cashew milk? or is the soaking water not used after the soaking?


  2. A question about using cashew milk. I was using it to make cashew milk kefir. I’m trying to go keto and I’m wonder about the carb load. Thank you.
