Use your imagination for the different ways to add this rich and delicious Cashew nut milk to your smoothie — and dessert — repertoire. It’s particularly delicious in our Cashew Chocolate Cherry Smoothie recipe. Plan ahead to allow time to soak the raw cashew nuts.
3 ½ oz. raw cashews, along with water to cover them
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
4 Drops French Vanilla Stevia, optional
2 T. Agave nectar
1 T. vegetable, coconut, or nut oil of your choice, such as almond oil.
1 t. vanilla
2 ½ c. water
Place the raw cashews in a medium bowl and cover with water. Soak for 30 minutes.
Once the cashews have finished soaking, drain and discard the water and place the cashews in a blender along with the rest of the ingredients, except for the Stevia.
Blend on medium to high speed until very smooth.
If necessary after tasting, add four drops of French Vanilla Stevia to add sweetness.
Store in the refrigerator for up to three days.
