water for soaking cashews
Soak raw cashews in water for 6-8 hours.
Drain cashews and add to blender.
Pour roughly half of the 500 ml of water into the blender. Blend on high until cashew mixture is smooth (~2 - 3 mins).
Add in the rest of the water, maple syrup, salt, and vanilla extract. Blend on high for another 2 - 3 min or until smooth.
Optional: strain your cashew milk with a sieve or cheese cloth for an extra smooth texture.
Chill in refrigerator until needed. Stir well before using.
