Cinnamon Cashew Milk

Ingredients:

1 cup raw cashews
4 cups water
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:
  1. Soak the cashews in water for at least 4-5 hours, or in the fridge overnight.
  2. Once the cashews have been soaked, place in a blender with 2 cups of water. Begin to blend the mixture on low speed, slowly increasing the speed until the cashews are completely broken down.
  3. Add in another 2 cups of water, as well as the vanilla extract and ground cinnamon. Blend completely.

Note: For an even creamier milk, use 3 cups of water instead of 4. However, 4 cups of water will yield a standard milk consistency. The mixture can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days.
