Fresh Cashew Milk

Fresh cashew milk is delicious in lattes, hot cocoa and tea. And it’s absolutely simple to make it at home! 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!
