Last time, I shared the good, the bad, and the very, very ugly of nut milks available out there. Make sure you read that post if you haven’t already before you buy almond milk or other non-dairy milks.
I gave you my simple and delicious recipe for almond milk in that post, but today I’m going to take things up a notch and share a tasty treat: Chocolate cashew milk.
This has become a favorite indulgence in my house, for both our toddler who thinks he’s drinking the best thing on earth, and for the adults!
I’m also sharing a recipe for homemade hemp milk, which is surprisingly easy. I hope you’ll give them both a try.
Chocolate Cashew Milk
1 cup cashews
1 cup water (1st blend)
3 cups water (2nd blend)
1 tsp. vanilla (or 10 drops Medicine Flower Vanilla)
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. sea salt
¼ cup cacao powder
1 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tbsp. coconut butter (optional)
Cacao nibs or shaved cacao (80%) (optional garnish)
Blend 1 cup cashews and 1 cup water first for about 30 seconds on high speed.
Next, add remaining ingredients and the 3 remaining cups of water. No straining required.
If you’re drinking it right away, add a handful of ice cubes to make it cold. Garnish with cacao nibs or shaved cacao (80%).
Otherwise, put it in the refrigerator to cool. It lasts 4 to 5 days.
1 cup hemp seeds (shelled)
2 cups filtered water
½ tsp. vanilla extract (or 2 drops Medicine Flower Vanilla)
½ tbsp. coconut oil
⅛ tsp. salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
2 tbsp. cacao powder (optional for Chocolate Hemp Milk)
½ teaspoon of spice such as cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, or allspice (optional)
½ banana and/or 2 dates and/or 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
Place seeds into a blender and add small amount of water 1 inch above the seeds. Turn blender on at multiple speeds and agitate the seeds so they become a thick hemp cream.
Then add vanilla, coconut oil, sea salt and any optional ingredients and blend again. Strain through a cheesecloth if you choose. Serve as a thick drink as is or add water at a ratio of 4.75 parts water to 1 part thick hemp mixture for a lighter hemp milk.
