Homemade Chocolate Cashew Milk

{vegan + paleo}

Today we’re talking about how to make homemade chocolate cashew  milk! This delicious plant based nut milk is incredibly easy to make.

It doesn’t require straining, and I’ve even included a short cut if  you’re short on time to reduce the soaking time to 15 MINUTES!

– raw cashews – water to soak – cold water – maple syrup OR 3-4 dates, depending on size – cacao powder – cinnamon


Start by soaking the raw cashews. This can be done one of three ways depending on how much time you have to prepare them.

You can either: soak cashews overnight in cold water, soak cashews in just boiled water for about an hour, or simmer cashews in boiling water for about 15 minutes until softened.

When the cashews are ready to be made into milk, they will be plump and soft. Once cashews are soaked and prepped, strain and rinse with cold water.

Add rinsed cashews to a blender with 4 cups of cold water, maple syrup or dates, cacao powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and sea salt.

Blend on high for about 2 minutes, until smooth, creamy, and frothy. Store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and ENJOY!
