When life gives you lemons you make lemonade, sorbet, muffins and lemon drops. But when life gives you cashews, you make EVERYTHING!
Never has there been a more perfect food. In its natural state a cashew is the perfect snack...it's creamy, delicious, filling and packed with protein and good fats (the kind that make your hair shiny and skin plump). And in its altered state whether cooked or not its simply perfection. It can be cheese, cream, milk, dessert, spread...the list goes on and on.
If you have been lucky enough to feast you eyes and mouths at Gracias Madre then you have most likely devoured their mouth watering cashew cheeze drizzled over perfectly cooked cauliflower then you know just how incredible the cashew is.
You do not know heaven until you have tasted their cashew cheeze sauce. They pour it on everything...and with good reason. It is absolute perfection. So good we needed to figure out how to make it.
And now we have and we can't get enough. Think your kids don't like veggies? Drizzle this on it and you have veggie lovers galore.

Ahhh cashew milk...the drink dreams are made of. The milk that makes your coffee amazing, your smoothies perfect, your tummy full and ice cream a-mazing. We do love So Delicious store bought cashew milk for its ease and minimal ingredients but nothing is better than home made nut milk. Oh and its crazy easy. Like embarrassingly so.
- 1 cup raw cashews soaked in 4 cups filtered water for 6-10 hours (not too much longer or it could turn in hot weather)
- 1 pinch of sea salt
- 1 teaspoon (or more) of real vanilla extract
- 1-2 dates (pitted)
- 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
Throw it all in a blender and voila...perfection!
