Friends, with grocery prices on the rise, I have been looking for ways to save money and make some of my favorite pantry staples, at home. From my simple oat flour to the creamiest oat milk, it is so easy to make these ingredients at home. And one of my new favorite pantry staples to make at home? Cashew milk.

When it comes to nut milks, I truly believe that cashew milk reigns supreme, and that’s because unlike almonds, cashews don’t require soaking beforehand. Which means, this is a recipe that can truly come together in 2 minutes! If you’re someone like me who has a busy schedule and doesn’t always have time to prep-ahead, then you’re going to love how simple this recipe is.

What You Need to Make This Simple & Easy Cashew Milk

  • Cashews: Cashews are my favorite nut to use for nut milk. Why? For starters, they tend to yield a creamier milk than almonds do. But, unlike almonds, cashews don’t need to be soaked overnight (or at all) in order to for them to blend into a creamy, milky consistency. What could be better than that?
  • Maple Syrup: Maple syrup adds the perfect amount of sweetness, without the refined sugars.
  • Vanilla Extract: The vanilla extract helps to make this cashew milk taste sweet and delicious!
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: Of course, cocoa powder is essential to making chocolate milk.
  • Maca Powder: This is optional, but I love adding in some maca powder to give this milk a malty flavor.
  • Cold Water: Cold water is what forms the base of this milk.
  • Sea Salt: A pinch of sea salt adds the best flavor to this milk!

Three Ways to Enjoy This Delicious, Chocolate Cashew Milk

  • Add it to a smoothie: A creamy, chocolate smoothie like my German Chocolate Cake Smoothie can be made even better with the addition of this Chocolate Cashew Milk.
  • Replace your morning coffee creamer: This Chocolate Cashew Milk can be added to a cup of coffee to make it taste like a delicious, creamy mocha!
  • Turn it into ice cream: If you’ve never made dairy-free ice cream before, then you need to try this recipe, especially with the addition of this chocolate cashew milk!
