  • ~1 cup cashew milk
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • pinch of beetroot powder (to enhance the pink color)
Instructions
  1. Preparations: soak cashews in room temperature for about 4 hours in a jar or bowl filled with warm water and salt.
  2. Drain and rinse cashews and put them in a high-speed blender.
  3. Add water and other ingredients and blend until smooth.
  4. Make chocolate and strawberry milk by blending all the ingredients until smooth.
  5. Store in the fridge in an airtight container and use within three days.
Notes
The passive preparation time is about 4 hours (soaking cashews).


Cashews when soaked properly are very creamy, and make a really lovely creamy milk. I never separate cashew pulp from the milk, I just blend the milk really well until super creamy. If you like your milk without (creamy) pulp, just use a cheesecloth or nut milk bag to take away the pulp.
