  • Total Time: 1-2 hours
  • Yield: About 4-5 cups 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


Units Scale

1 cup raw cashews
4 cups water
12 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch salt
Pinch of cinnamon (optional)


1. Soak the cashews in water for around 1-2 hours.
2. Drain the cashews and rinse well until the water runs clear, then drain again.
3. Add the cashews and two cups water to a blender. Start on a low setting and increase the speed until the cashews are totally pulverized. This could take 2 minutes in a high-powered blender or longer in a regular blender.
4. Slowly add the remaining water, more or less depending on your desired consistency.
5. Then add the maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt and cinnamon (optional).
6. If your blender can’t totally break down the cashews, strain the milk through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth.
7. Store the milk in a glass jar or bottle with a lid in the refrigerator and use within 2 days.
8. Be sure to give it a shake before using.
