    I don’t strain my cashew milk. I soak my cashews over night and then blend them with (fresh) water in my vitamin. The soaking is probably not necessary with a vitamix but since it’s no trouble at all, I usually do it. I don’t sweeten it either. I’m just saying this so people are aware of the various possibilities. (I do sometimes sweeten some already-made milk a bit for a latte.)

    What can you do with the cashew pulp?

      Use it to thicken soup or in baking. Or to make a creamy dressing.

    Thanks for your great recipes. May I know if you are using raw cashew for the milk? also to make oat milk we can use raw as well?

      The cashews are natural raw cashews. I haven’t tried raw oats, but I don’t think they would work very well.
