How to Make Plant Milks: Almond Milk and Cashew Milk

Cashew Milk

Wait, milk from a plant?

Plant milk or “mylk” is a term for non dairy milks. These can be made from a variety of nuts such as cashews and almonds (nut milks), but also from oats, soya beans, coconuts etc.

Cashew milk and almond milk are two of my favourites to make at home! Watch the video to learn how to make your own. Full instructions can be found below.
