When we first switched to paleo 8 years ago, I did it all wrong.
I tried to eat everything I did before – just swapped out grains for “paleo” ingredients. Charles saw right through this and was quick to point out it defeated the purpose. But I was sure I could keep enjoying all my sweets and baked goods, just in “paleo” form.
I quickly learned better, but back to the point of my store.
To be able to do this I used coconut in everything… oil, flour, manna… in EVERYTHING! And unfortunately in the process of learning my lesson, I overdid it. Now everything that even has just a bit of coconut oil or flour in it tastes completely overpowered by coconut.
Now I don’t rely on “paleo-ized” items, but I still do love certain things – like milk in my coffee or smoothie 🙂
And that’s the great thing about cashew milk!
Originally I tried store-bought, but wasn’t the biggest fan. But homemade, I really like the taste. And as a bonus, it is really easy make, like just push a button on your blender easy. It’s also great that I don’t have to strain out anything like you do with almond milk, which seems wasteful. Just dump everything in the blender and let it do its thing. Saying this is even a recipe is a little bit of a bold statement – but all the less, here it is!

Have you used this before?? I use it in coffee, gelatin puddings etc. but do you have any great ideas for how to use cashew milk?
