  • 1 cup Raw cashews
  • 4 cups Water + water for soaking
  • 1-2 tbsp Maple syrup or agave
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


  • Start by soaking the cashews overnight or for at least 8 hours. (See additional note if you forgot to soak.)
  • After the cashews have soaked, drain and rinse them.
  • In a high-power blender, add the soaked cashews, 4 cups of water, maple syrup or agave, vanilla extract, and salt.
  • Blend on high for 2 minutes, or until creamy.


If you don’t have time to soak the cashews in water overnight, you can boil them on the stove until they soften. They won’t be as soft, but it does the trick.
