Cashew milk is so easy to make with your Thermomix. I make it fresh every few days because I like it in my tea and coffee. Deliciously rich and creamy, homemade cashew milk adds a lovely flavour to both hot and cold drinks and can also be used as a replacement for dairy milk in recipes. I also like to pour it over fruit compôtes or porridge.
Cashew milk is a firm favourite of mine because it doesn’t need to be sieved like other nut milks. This recipe saves me so much time and effort – the cashew solids become so fine that I am happy to leave them in.
Soaking the nuts beforehand in slightly salty water is important as it makes them more digestible. The soaking water can be diluted and used to water your garden plants if you wish, however it should not be drunk by humans or pets.
This recipe is suitable for Thermomix TM5 and TM31.
