Cashew Milk

Be Well Kitchen: Homemade Cashew Milk Recipe

Cashew milk is one of my all time favorite non-dairy milks - it’s rich, creamy and delicious! While I have recently noticed that it’s now sold boxed in some stores, it’s best when made at home and the good news is it’s super easy. I love using it in smoothies, chia seed pudding, and in tea/coffee and more! When using a high power blender, it doesn’t require soaking or straining, so you can make it in a pinch. However, since cashews are on the soft side, it’s possible to make this in most any blender, not just a high-powered one.

The Right Whey

Whey is a form of protein derived from dairy that is a “complete” protein, meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids. The essential amino acids are ones that our body doesn’t produce by itself, so we need to get them from food sources. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, helping to renew cells, build muscles, restore and heal.
