You can buy nut milks at all grocery stores these days but there’s something really satisfying about making it at home. The taste is different – better and creamier in my opinion. Plus, you can control all of the ingredients. You can vary the flavor by adding your favorite sweetener or spice. I used cardamom because it reminds of when my mom used to make warm milk with cardamom when I was a kid. She would make it when anyone was sick and it always made me feel better! You can store cashew milk in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the fridge.
