Strawberry Cashew Mylk

Who loves strawberry mylk? I do…now.

I’ve never made cashew mylk before today and I’m so glad I did…especially with my fave fruit.  Bonus? This creamy beverage turns my favorite color (pink). #WINNING

But not only that, CASHEWS are extremely good for us. They are packed with lots of nutrients and they are so great for our heart health. Plus, they’re full of those healthy FATS. OK!!!

What I like about this recipe is that it isn’t too strawberry-ee. Just enough so I feel okay about putting it in anything. It’s perfectly sweet and you really get the flavor of the cashews coming out. But then again, it doesn’t taste like you’re just drinking a bunch of cashews either. It’s just CREAMY AND DELICIOUS, OK?! Just trust me on this one 🙂

It’s the perfect-sweet-dessert to drink on it’s own. But I’d even use it for smoothies, oatmeal, pancakes, and whatever else delicious baked goods…Okay, now I’m hungry…

This is what I used but feel free to add and subtract as you’d like. You know your own taste buds better than I do, honey!

1 cup cashews (soaked overnight or 4+ hours, then drained)

2 cup strawberries

4 cup water

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

4 pitted dates

pinch of pink himalayan salt
