You can use raw, unsalted cashews or almonds for this recipe.
1/2 cup (or more if you like it creamier) raw soaked almonds or raw (unroasted) cashews
3 or 4 Tablespoons raw agave nectar (or raw sugar)
4 cups water
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or scrapings from a vanilla bean (optional)
Put the ingredients in a blender for a couple of minutes and pour it through a sieve if it is made with almonds- (you don't need to filter the cashew milk because the cashew are soft and turn into cream easily). Use a sieve with larger holes at first to catch the bigger pieces of nuts and then pour it through a finer one so it will be smooth.
Use this milk to replace any recipe that calls for milk, or chill it and drink as is. I love it so much. I make milk shakes by adding bananas, ice, cinnamon and clove powder to the blender.
