  • 1 cup cashews soaked overnight and rinsed
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tbsp. agave nectar

  1. Add ingredients to WildSide+ or FourSide jar in order listed and secure lid. Select "Whole Juice" or blend on a Medium to Medium High speed for 50-60 seconds.
  2. Serve or store in refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Note: Use more or less water to vary the thickness of your raw cashew milk. A 4:1 ratio of water to cashews is similar to whole milk in taste. If you add another cup of water, the resulting 5:1 ratio is similar to 2% milk.


Use 1 Medjool date or 1 tbsp. of date paste instead of agave to sweeten it.

  • No sweetener needed. You need to soak the cashews because it breaks down the phytic acid.

  • I would not use agave. For a lower carbohydrate count Stevia is much better.

  • I forgot trash the agave nectar too processed toss in 1 date

  • Pretty good…but I still prefer raw goat milk. And the "container" is much more personable and fun, too.

  • I add a date and a touch of cinnamon to mine.

    Janette Bennett on

  • Thank you I really don’t care for Agave,

    Kat on

  • Great idea – I was hoping there was a replacement for the agave since I don’t like using it. I will use the date as you suggested.

  • Can the cashews be the roasted kind or do they have to be raw?

    Robert Myers on

  • Do I need a nut straining bag? If so, what type? Nylon, cotton?

    RF on

  • There is an Agave nectar that is acceptably pure look for cold pressed using no heat it is good but very expensive I only use it in raw chocolate, makes all the difference in the world not sure why but it does..

  • The blender can not handle 5:1… It will overflow

    Guest on

  • The cashews soften with soaking, and so they blend smoothly when you mix them with water the next day. If you reduce the water to just barely cover the previously-soaked nuts in the jar, you will make a thick cashew cream that works as a healthy substitute for dairy cream.

  • Made the cashew milk 5:1 in my Blendtec and it overflowed while blending.

    Linda on

  • Bear is correct. The cashew milk will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

    Blendtec on

  • Roasted cashews may be used for cashew milk, though the taste will be altered. Also, the soaking time is cut in half.

    Blendtec on

  • The cashews need to be soaked in order to make the raw nuts soft enough to blend to a drinkable liquid.

    Blendtec on

  • I believe soaking nuts also reduces the phytic acids

    brian on

  • No straining necessary with this cashew milk recipe!

    Blendtec on

  • I was making heavy cream from soaked raw cashews today (1 cup cashews, soaked 4 h, 2 cups filtered water), and my husband and I could not decide which button on the TotalBlender Blendtec I should use. He insisted on the smoothie, and I tried that, but thought, maybe sauce would be better? Who has tried this? Which button of the six is best, soup??

    Claudia Kellersch on

  • I just made this – no sweetener or salt – and it was fantastic! I’ll never buy store bought nut milk again!

    PghPammy on

  • There isn’t really a right answer for this. We have a Garden Cashew Cream (http://www.blendtec.com/rec… recipe that uses the Ice Cream cycle. You can always just try one and stop it early or run it again until it reaches the desired consistency. You can also just use the manual speeds and control it yourself. :)

    Blendtec on

  • I have never soaked the cashews. The Blendtec makes perfectly smooth cashew milk as long as you use the correct settings. 3 cups water, 1 cup organic raw cashew pieces, 1 medjool date.

    Sharon Sproles on

  • Does the taste profile change dramatically when cooked?

    churukah on

  • Why do the cashews need to be soaked over night?
