Cashew Milk

This easy vegan cashew milk recipe is sooo creamy you’ll think it’s dairy milk. The process is quick and requires only two ingredients and no straining, I REPEAT, no straining (yay)! This milk is great for smoothies, matcha lattes, coffee creamers, or as a replacement for dairy milk in any other recipe. Try it plain and unsweetened or add any of the optional ingredients for a flavorful twist, enjoy!Processed with VSCO with c9 preset
