Homemade Nut Milks
Soak cashews in water (this is not the 4 cups of filtered water, this is extra just for soaking) 4-8 hours or overnight.
Strain and rinse cashews and place in a blender.
Add the 4 cups of filtered water and vanilla extract (if using) to the blender.
Blend for 5-10 minutes, or until there are no more chunks.
Strain through a nut milk bag.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
