cashew nut milk

Cashew nut milk is a healthy, vegan alternative to dairy milk. It’s easy to make and you can use it in all the same ways. For those who want to avoid dairy but also want something creamy, this nut-based beverage is a great option.

Cashews are high in protein, fibre, magnesium, and unsaturated fats, making them a great addition to any diet plan. Like other nuts, cashews contain healthful vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, and vitamin E. They’re also gluten-free for those with celiac disease or other food allergies.

It is relatively simple to make cashew nut milk. You can adjust the portion based on your needs and the ratio of cashew nut to water is 1:3.
