Looking for a nondairy milk, that is creamy, less in calories, but full in flavor? Cashew milk is this week’s Supermarket RD’s Pick! Check out why it is #RDapproved.
This week’s Supermarket RD’s Pick is a staple found in my refrigerator – Cashew Milk! I do enjoy other nondairy milks too, but cashew milk has a little bit of an edge over the others (in my opinion).
I use cashew milk in my coffee, cereal, smoothies, baked goods, etc. I like my coffee light, so with less calories and a really creamy consistency it works well.
What does cashew milk taste like? It’s creamy, hint of sweet, and a subtle cashew flavor.
Don’t get me wrong, I love almond milk, but cashew milk is a lot creamier. I would maybe compare cashew milk to a 2% consistency and other nondairy milks to a skim milk consistency.
How is cashew milk made?
The cashews are roasted and grinded into a butter that is used to make a creamy cashew milk.
