Here's a basic recipe that can be used to create any nut milk!
1 cup of nuts or seeds?
3 cups of water ?
Dash of salt
2-5 Dates (to desired sweetness) or Agave Syrup (to desired sweetness)
Place nuts/seeds and water into blender. Blend until it is smooth.
If you are not using raw cashews, then you may want to use a mesh strainer (or mesh nut milk bag) to separate the pulp from the liquid. Once your milk is strained, add the salt and sweetener of your choice.
You can use either almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazel nuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, sesame seeds, or hemp seeds. If there's some other nut or seed you'd like to try, go for it! I almost always strain the milk, unless I am making a smoothie of some sort.
Sometimes I add a vanilla bean or a little bit of carob powder to the milk.
If you want your drink to be cold, you can include some ice in with the water measurement or place it in the freezer for a little while to chill.
