THIS DAIRY-FREE MILK REPLACEMENT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES. ITS SMOOTH, CREAMY, DELICIOUS AND A CINCH TO MAKE!
It's great for kiddos too. Mine love this straight-up or with my Nut-Free Chocolate Granola! ⠀
When you go paleo or whole30 or are just trying to avoid dairy this recipe is a wonderful DIY option. I found myself going overboard with almond milk when I went dairy-free and I wanted to change things up. This milk is the perfect option! Both the coconut and the cashews are naturally sweet nuts so if you prefer, you can omit the date.
Check out my coconut cashew creamer if you are looking for something richer!
Coconut Cashew Milk
a deliciously creamy non-dairy milk replacement
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1/2 cup shredded dried coconut
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 Medjool date pitted (optional)
- 3 cups of filtered water
- Soak your raw cashews in hot water for 20-30 minutes.
- Discard the water and add your cashews along with the rest of the ingredients to a high-speed blender.

I use the pulp leftover as a fat source in my smoothies or to make baked goods, granola, or bliss balls!
