cashew milk-0282


Most mornings, I stick to juice.

It’s a one-part convenience, one-part passion thing 🙂

By the time I’ve fed the children, the dog, the cats, the washing machine and the garden I need the simplest, most efficient and most nutritious breakfast possible.

Usually one juice leads to another as my juicer cranks itself up a notch for the next batch.

But sometimes, a protein kick is in order and as words and images are flying off my computer at 100 knots an hour, the last thing I want to do is gear down and start faffing about with the fridge, crockery and cutlery.

Enter blender, cashews, sea salt, dates and water.

It’s that simple.

(back to 100 knots an hour)


2 handfuls of cashew nuts (best pre-soaked but not necessary)

large pinch of sea-salt (I use 2 pinches as I’m a salt freak)

Cayenne or Cinnamon

1 or 2 medjoul dates

Large cup of water (add more if you prefer it less thick)

Blend ’til completely liquid.

(add agave/maple syrup/honey if you prefer a more indulgently sweet version).
