Homemade cashew milk has been a staple in my household for years because, let’s face it, cashews are awesome – gently sweet, creamy, perfect. Apparently I’m not alone in my opinion, 31 percent of Americans have proclaimed it their favorite nut (16 percent voted for almonds). Yet for some reason this amazing nut (or seed) had been relatively ignored by the dairy-free industry. Fortunately, a giant in our little niche is seeking to change all that; Turtle Mountain has introduced So Delicious Dairy Free Cashew Milk Beverage.
The first flavors to be released were Unsweetened and Unsweetened Vanilla (I predict more cashew milk varieties in the future). Both have a clean, rich taste that could be compared to 2% milk in consistency. The flavor is quite neutral with no bitter or chalky aftertaste. The Vanilla cashew milk has an amazing scent, but beyond the delicious fragrance, the vanilla adds just a very gentle hint of flavor and sweetness.
I’ve never been a “glass of milk” drinker, so this delight is a little too rich for me to sip straight, but it’s amazing in smoothies, breakfast cereal and granola, savory recipes (think creamy sauces or bread), sweet recipes (rice pudding, ice milk, or those yummy cupcakes pictured below), or most other milky needs. Cashew milk is a great, versatile, multi-purpose alternative that is definitely worth considering, especially if you are a coconut milk beverage or almond milk fan.
