Homemade Cashew Milk (DIY)

This is one of my favourite plant-powered milks of all time. The cashews bring the most delightful taste and get super creamy. There’s no need to buy expensive plant milk in the grocery stores anymore, this is the real deal.

I developed this recipe with cinnamon to bring a spiced flavor, cause let’s face it I’m absolutely nuts about the taste of cinnamon. If you’re not in the same place as me and don’t really like the spiced flavour → then avoid the cinnamon and perhaps replace with cardamom or vanilla.

Cashew Milk (DIY)




Yield 10 servings


  • 1 cup dry unsalted cashews 
  • 1 cup water (for soaking the cashews)  
  • 3½ to 4 cups water (depending on what texture you'll prefer)  
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 
  • 3 small medjool dates, pitted
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Cover the cashew with water and let soak for 2-4 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Strain through a sieve and rinse briefly.
  3. Place the cashew and the new water in a blender along with the remaining ingredients. Pulse for 1-2 minutes. 
  4. Strain through a clean kitchen towel or a nut milk bag. Personally I prefer using a nut milk bag, basically because it's much easier to control the milk and a lot easier to clean up afterwords. 
  5. Let chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

    • I got to tell you that I have a hard time keeping my fingers away from the cashews too 😉 And I’m happy to hear that I’m not alone. But Cashew Milk has really become one of my favourites! Thank you so much, dear.
