  • 1 C Raw Cashews 160g
  • 2 Medjool Dates pitted*
  • 3 1/2 C Water** 798g
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon optional


  • Soak the cashews in very hot water for 15 minutes (cashews can be soaked in room temperature water for two hours or overnight as well - whatever works for your schedule). Drain and rinse. Add cashews to the blender along with dates, water, salt, extract and cinnamon. Blend starting on low speed and increasing to high until smooth and frothy, about 40 seconds.
  • Store in a lidded container for up to three days.


*Adjust to taste and use sweetener of choice. I've used maple syrup too, with delicious results.
**For thinner milk use 4 C (912g) water.
