Making your own homemade nut milks is a valuable life skill. Yeah, even though buying non-dairy milks is easy as these days (thank goodness for that!), there’s something very satisfying about making your own.
You can just sort of sit there smiling smugly to yourself, knowing that you can do it for yourself. Any. time. you. want.
And while the stuff you buy at the store is pretty darn fabulous, there is something a little extra special about the homemade variety.
And of course, you get to make it as creamy as you want. Yes, that’s right – as creamy as you want.
And I think you want it creamy.
Super creamy. Dreamy creamy. Cashew milk moustache kind of creamy.
Coming right up!
What’s more – it doesn’t get easier than this.
With just 5 easy ingredients, a blender and a nut milk bag on hand, you can have creamy dreamy nut milk in minutes.
Okay….you do have to soak the nuts first….. for like, 4 hours.
But after THAT – it’s ready in minutes.
