When I was a child, some times we would run out of milk for cereal. So we would used water instead. Not exactly a good substitute, but it was all we had so we made due. Now I know, if you just added cashews to that water you would actually have milk. Not just milk, but a healthy non-dairy alternative as well!

Nut milk is so fascinating to me! Who would believe that you can make a rich milk using cashews?!? So this morning as I was making homemade waffles for my husband I discovered that we didn't have any more store bought almond milk. So milk girl to that rescue! I use the following recipe but adjust as you see fit.

                                                             1 cup of soaked cashews (soak over night)
                                                             32 ounces of water
                                                             5-6 medjool dates (optional: adds sweetness)

Blend all the ingredients on the highest speed for 2-4 minutes until a milky foam forms. Drain the nut milk and then pour into a glass bottle like old times. ENJOY!!
