Cashew Milk

Cashew Milk

Making your own nut milk sounds like it might be daunting, but it's actually quite easy! By making your own you not only get a more flavorful result, but you don't have any of the preservatives and thickeners found in most commercial brands. 


Nutritional Facts: Cashews are a wonderful source of minerals such as copper, manganese, zinc, phosphorus and magnesium. Just 1/4c of whole cashews contains 7 grams of protein, so they make a great snack choice as well.
