I’m enjoying frothy, fresh cashew nut milk with my breakfast today! To think I used to just drink boring ol’ dairy milk!? Words just can’t describe how flavoursome nut and seed milks are – so much nicer and more healthy supportive than dairy! Aside from being a satisfying, dairy alternative, cashew milk provides a good dose of healthy fats, Vitamin K, iron, magnesium and protein 👌🏻

To make, follow the easy-peasy instructions below and enjoy every last drop of your homemade cashew nut milk, one taste and you’ll be hooked! Experiment with different nuts too – it’s important to rotate our foods to ensure we don’t develop intolerances to our favourite things – just like in life, we must have variety in our diet! Here’s a great almond milk recipe and here I show you how to make coconut milk – SO EASY!
