This tastes AMAZING! The ginger and spices combined with the cashews create the most delicious “milk” ever. You can turn this into a smoothie by adding bananas and greens, or any fruit of your choice. Stored in an airtight container, the milk will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. For a warm treat, Kris Carr (whose recipe this is) suggests heating up a cup on the stovetop and sprinkling with cinnamon.
- 1 cup organic raw cashews, soaked for 2 hours*, rinsed, and drained
- 1/2-inch piece ginger, peeled
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 to 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 3 1/4 cups water
- In a high-speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
*Note: you can soak cashews anywhere from 2 – 6 hours. If you want to make this drink in the morning, soak the cashews for 2 hours the night before, drain, rinse and store in the fridge in a glass container.
