For a quick smoothie variation, try this: Soak 1/2 cup of cashews for 1-2 hours. Drain. Put the soaked cashews in the Vita-Mix with 1 cup of filtered water, 1 banana and a few raw cacao beans. Mix on the smoothie setting. And enjoy a rich and satisfying raw treat!
Chef’s note: We used a Vita-Mix to prepare the cashew milk. You can also use a food processor, or a blender. You may need to adjust the water slightly if using these other options, and you also may need to strain the liquid using a nutmilk bag or a fine sieve.
1 cup of raw cashews
4 cups of filtered water
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
Optional: Dash of nutmeg
1. Soak the cashews for 1-2 hours.
3. You will most likely find that there are still small pieces of cashew nut remaining. Run on the "Smoothies" setting one more time. You should now have a perfectly smooth and frothy cashew nut milk.
4. Transfer to a glass container and enjoy!
