Cashew Coffee Creamer

Cashew Coffee Creamer

One of the struggles we saw in the pilot group of the Fit & Fueled Challenge was the lack of a really tasty, affordable coffee creamer. Yes, there are some you can purchase and order online. However, they are quite expensive and, if you are like me, I like “coffee with my cream,” if you know what I mean:)

So, I had my “mad food scientist,” as I lovingly refer to her (Mandy) come up with this recipe and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It’s so simple you are going to think it won’t work! BUT IT DOES!

It’s creamy. It dissolves perfectly in your coffee. It lasts in your fridge forever. It even freezes and thaws out beautifully!  So, give it a try!!

The technique is the same with almonds, if you would like to make yourself some almond creamer. You just don’t need to soak the almonds as long as the cashews.

Instructions
  1. Take 1 cup of raw cashews and soak them overnight with just a pinch of salt mixed in.
  2. The next morning, rinse the cashews and place them in the blender with 2 1/2 cups of water.
  3. Blend until consistency is that of your usual coffee creamer. Keep adding water, a little at a time, until consistency is to your liking.
  4. I recommend that you strain your milk with a nut milk bag. See link for recommendation in notes. It will make all the difference in how residue-free your creamer turns out.
  5. Store it in your refrigerator for up to two weeks or in your freezer. Then thaw it out to use.
Recipe Notes

This makes at least a large Mason jar full. You can keep watering down the cream as you use it. You can also freeze this creamer and thaw it out to use.

Go to the CHALLENGE APPROVED FOODS page to check out the "nut milk bag" I recommend and use. It will make ALL the difference in how much you LOVE this creamer!
