Raw Vegan Cashew Milk : Sweet & "Cinnamon-y"

Happy New Year! It's 4 am and I am wide awake. My daughter S woke me up and told me she's hungry so I had to make her some breakfast (very early breakfast that is!). We are still obviously jetlagging and need to work on adjusting to the new time zone after a month-long holiday vacation in the US. It's my 2nd day back here and I hope to adjust by tomorrow. I have a full schedule ahead today starting with my yoga class at home this morning so I need the energy. Since I am up already, I thought I might as well do something productive while watching over my daughter. Thus this post which will actually be my first official entry of 2015. I am happy that it's about food and wellness. 

When life gives you cashews (raw), make nut milk. It's vegan, gluten-free and natural and can be done in 5 minutes or less. This recipe is not the usual cashew milk because its delicately sweet and cinnamon-y (I love cinnamon plus its really good for you too!). However for those who want it plain and simple, you may omit the other ingredients and just stick to cashew and distilled. It will work perfectly as well.

Prep Time : 5 minutes
Total Time : 5 minutes
Shelf Life : 3 days in the refrigerator


Ingredients :

1 cup of raw cashew
3 cups of distilled water
2 tablespoons of agave nectar or honey (in this case I used honey)
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1. Blend the cashews and water in a high-speed blender. Blend very well so that the liquid resembles a thin milk.
  • 2. Add the remaining raw cashew milk recipe ingredients and blend again.
  • 3. Drink this delicious raw cashew milk recipe and experience heavenly bliss! 

You can drink this as it is, serve with your favourite cereal or even as a dessert.

Keep it real,
