This recipe for Non-Dairy Cinnamon Vanilla Cashew Milk is so easy. If I solely knew how straightforward it was to make my very own non-dairy milks, I might have began doing it years in the past. Why did it take me so lengthy to find this?!
Okay, it’s nonetheless not as straightforward as selecting up a carton of almond milk on the retailer. However it’s simpler than I assumed it might be. After studying about carrageenan, I made a decision that I needed to keep away from non-dairy milk made with it. This isn’t a lecture-y weblog, so don’t take this as me telling you what you need to or mustn’t eat, however I made a decision that for me, I’d moderately search out merchandise that don’t use carrageenan. There are many carrageenan-free nut and soy milks on the market, however I began to get inquisitive about whether or not I may make my very own.
I began with my pal Kelly’s tutorial on how you can make your individual coconut milk. It was straightforward and scrumptious and I needed to make extra. MOOOORE! So then I attempted making the cashew milk recipe that got here with my Vitamix. I like almond milk, however I believe I like cashew milk much more. (Facet be aware: why do they not promote cashew milk in grocery shops?)
Cashew milk is creamy and wealthy, with out having so as to add carrageenan or another thickeners. Not like different nut milks, cashew milk is so clean that you simply don’t need to pressure it (though you’ll be able to if you wish to). City Treatment makes a cashew milk spiced with vanilla and cinnamon, and though I haven’t tried it, it sounded so scrumptious that I assumed I’d put these flavors in my very own cashew milk.
If a hug could possibly be become a drink and bottled, it might style like this. It’s a hug in your tastebuds! Or one thing. The beverage equal of a heat fuzzy sweater, if you’ll. You already know why? As a result of the key ingredient is LOVE. (Oh, wait—no, it’s cinnamon.)
