This lush and creamy strawberry ‘milkshake’ is made from soaked cashew nuts. We add dates as a natural sweetener, but the real flavour comes from the strawberries. Depending on how ripe and sweet your strawberries are, you might like to deduct or add a date or two. When served in small bottles, this milk is ideal for a kids’ birthday party. It would also be delicious served with a bowl of porridge or muesli.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
150g raw cashew nuts
750ml filtered water
225g fresh ripe strawberries, tops removed
4-6 soft dates, pitted
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1-2 pinches sea salt
2-3 ice cubes

Method

  1. Place the cashews in a bowl, cover with filtered water and soak for 3–12 hours in the morning or overnight.
  2. Drain and rinse the cashews, discarding the soaking water. Add them to a blender along with the water and blend on a high speed until very smooth. For a creamy velvet texture, leave as is. Alternatively, for a silky smooth texture, strain the cashew milk through a nut milk bag, piece of cheesecloth or a fine-mesh sieve. Rinse out the blender and then return the cashew milk to the blender.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender and blend on a high speed until completely smooth. Taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding more dates if necessary.
  4. Store in the fridge in a large glass carafe with a lid/stopper. It can keep for a few days in the fridge, if sealed.
  5. When ready to serve, pour into medium-sized glass bottles and serve with straws.

Tip

  • For a thinner, subtler and more affordable milk, try adding an extra cup of filtered water.
