Strawberry Cashew Mylk + How to Make Cashew Milk!

I’ve never been a huge fan of milk.

As a child I never really drank it on its own, it always tasted funny to me, and I just didn’t get why I would drink a liquid that came out of another animals titties. Yep, I just said titties.

Anyway. The only way I would drink said liquid was if it was ice cold and barely present in my cereal, or if it was mixed into oblivion with either chocolate powder or Nesquick. Strawberry Nesquick, to be more specific.

I still haven’t gotten around my milk-phobias, and luckily now there are for more suiting options for me. All hail nut milks!

I’ve been an almond milk girl for ages, but I thought it about time I broaden my horizons. Enter cashew milk. It’s super simple to make, super creamy, and doesn’t have an overpowering taste either, so it’s perfect to add to smoothies and the strawberry version can be an awesome addition to porridges. I don’t know why I haven’t had this in my life before!

Promise me you’ll try it?

It tastes super creamy and refreshing, sweet enough without having to add anything extra (though you can if you to!) and is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. I gave the strawberry mylk to a grown man who drank every last drop and absolutely loved it.

Strawberry Cashew Milk

Strawberry Cashew Mylk
The cashew milk on its own is deliciously creamy and versatile, and when blended with strawberries and vanilla it just tastes like a childhood favourite, simple and incredibly yummy!
Recipe type: Vegan, Healthy, Dairy Free
Cashew Mylk
  • 100g cashews, soaked overnight or for at least 4 hours
  • 725ml filtered water
Strawberry Cashew Mylk
  • 125ml cashew milk
  • 125ml water
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 8-10 large strawberries, fresh or thawed frozen
For the Cashew Mylk
  1. Drain and rinse the cashews, then place in a blender with the filtered water.
  2. Blend, raising the speed from low to high, until the cashews have broken down and there are no lumps. About 1 to 2 minutes depending on your blender. I don't strain mine, as cashews are soft and easy to break down and make a creamy milk!
For the Strawberry Mylk
  1. Place all the ingredients into the same blender as the cashew mylk - no need to rinse - and blend until everything is combined and smooth.
*If you want to make it extra creamy, add an extra 125ml of cashew milk in place of the water.

SWEETEN - I haven't added any extra sweeter in mine, both in the plain and in the strawberry mylk. If you want it sweeter, dates, honey, and maple syrup are all good options!
