Nut milk is great alternative if you’re staying away from dairy or if you want a new flavor profile for your smoothies. Some of my favorites include cashew milk, coconut milk and almond milk. My issue with the store-bought versions of these items is the long, long, long list of ingredients.
Cashews are used a lot in vegan or raw recipes, typically to add creaminess to foods when omitting dairy. My friend Christine makes a killer raw cheesecake and the filling is made of cashews. It also makes up my favorite Indian dessert, kaju katli.
