I worked a whole day in my garden & needed something comforting, healthy & tasty with cinnamon in it. So, I made this tasty date sweetened cinnamon cashew milk! Ooh yes! :) The milk is Vegan, Raw & Gluten-free too! ;) MMMMMMM!
Step 1: Gather Your 4 Ingredients!
Recipe: For about 1150 ml = 4.5 cups of date sweetened cinnamon cashew milk!
1 cup raw soaked, rinsed & well-drained cashews / How to soak your cashews nuts? Put them into a larger bowl & add water until they are all submerged. Place a fitted lid on & place into the fridge for at least 6 to 8 hours. The next day, I rinsed & drained them well with clean water. Throw away the drained water. Your nuts are now swollen & softer to digest for your body & more creamier too!
3 cups fresh clean water
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
6 pitted normal dates or less or none if you want a non-sweetened cinnamon milk! ;)
Step 2: Method!
1. Take your Vitamix & add all ingredients in this order into your Vitamix. Put tamper & fitted lid on. Blend on high-power until fully joined by using the tamper to push ingredients into the running blades. Taste! It must be a bit creamy & you must taste the cinnamon here! ;) I do not filter/ strain my cashew milk because everything is fully mixed in my beloved Vitamix & it is healthier that way! Pour into a clean bottle with fitted lid & place into the fridge or enjoy straight away, like I did! :) Yum Yum Yum! This would be lovely enjoyed in a good vegan café latte! Yum! I did that straight away & you can really taste the cinnamon & creamy cashew milk in your latte! :) xxx
2. After being in the fridge for a while, the milk & nuts will separate. So, shake your bottle up & down until the cinnamon & cashew milk again become one! ;) xxx Enjoy!
