Cashews are so versatile. They’re great for snacking on, adding to Asian dishes, mixing with basil and garlic to make a creamy pesto, and for also making a delicious nut milk!
This easy-to-make recipe will make cashews a staple in your house soon enough;).
And since cashews contain healthy fats that help lower cholesterol levels and keep your heart healthy, I don’t feel guilty about keeping a stash in the cupboard at all times. I love to drink it on its own, with cereal, in oatmeal, with coffee, the list goes on! All in moderation of course 😉.
* 1 cup raw unsalted cashews (have them soak in water in advance for a minimum of 2 hours)
* 1-2 dates (depends on how sweet you like the milk)
