Ingredients and Substitutions
100% pure cashew butter – Use high-quality cashew butter made from 100% cashews without any added sugars or oils for the best results.
If you don’t have cashew butter on hand, you can also make your own by blending cashews in a food processor or blender until they turn into a creamy consistency.
Water – Use high-quality filtered water to ensure the best taste and freshness in your homemade almond milk.
A pinch of salt – Adding a small amount of salt can prevent the milk from tasting bland and it brings out the flavor of the milk.
Additionally, you can adjust the recipe to suit your taste preferences by adding sweeteners such as dates, maple syrup, or vanilla extract for added sweetness.
You can also easily substitute cashew butter with other nut or seed butters, such as almond butter or sunflower seed butter, to create different variations of homemade plant-based milk.
- The consistency of cashew milk can be easily customized by adjusting the water-to-cashew ratio. For a thicker and creamier milk, use less water. For a thinner and lighter milk, use more water. Start with the recommended ratio in the recipe and adjust to your preference.
- Unlike many store-bought plant-based milks, it’s important to note that this homemade cashew milk recipe does not contain additional nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D, or B. If you rely on these fortified nutrients in your milk, you may need to supplement your diet with other sources.
- If you also like to froth your milk, you can add 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil to the blender when making cashew milk. This can help create a frothy texture similar to store-bought barista-style milk, perfect for lattes, cappuccinos, or other frothy drinks.
How to Make 2 Ingredient Cashew Milk
Step 1 – Before using cashew butter as an ingredient in your cashew milk recipe, give it a stir. This will help to evenly incorporate any oil that may have separated and settled on top of the jar.
Step 2– Add water and cashew Butter to blender. Adding water first helps to prevent the cashew butter from sticking to the blender jar. You can also add a pinch of salt, your preferred sweetener (if using), and any other desired add-ins at this stage.
Step 3 – Blend the mixture at a high speed for about a minute. The blending time may vary depending on the batch size, with larger batches requiring longer blending. The goal is to achieve a frothy and well-blended almond milk.
Step 4 – Taste the almond milk and adjust the consistency and sweetness to your preference. If you like a creamier consistency, you can add more almond butter. Similarly, if you prefer it sweeter, you can add more sweetener to taste.
- Vanilla extract – Add a splash of vanilla extract for a subtle, sweet flavor.
- Cinnamon – Sprinkle in some ground cinnamon for a warm and aromatic taste.
- Medjool dates – For natural sweetness, soak and blend a few pitted Medjool dates with the cashew milk.
- Maple syrup – Drizzle in some pure maple syrup for a rich and indulgent sweetness.
- Cocoa powder– Mix in cocoa powder for a chocolate-flavored cashew milk.
- Nutmeg – Grate in a pinch of nutmeg for a hint of warmth and spice.
- Coconut flakes – Blend in some shredded coconut for a tropical twist.
- Almond extract – Use almond extract for an extra almond flavor kick.
