DIY: Home Made Banana Cashew Nut Milk with a Dash of Cinnamon

On a dairy free, milk free, lactose free diet and looking for milk substitutes? Try my super delish banana-cashew nut milk!

I have given up most of my milk and dairy intake a few years ago. I still love to drink cappuccino, café latte or have a nice cereal or porridge breakkie with milk though, so I learned how to substitute common cow milk. For instance by using oat milk or making my own almond-date milk or sweet banana-cashew milk.
Here’s a delish, sweet recipe for a DIY cashew milk with banana and cinnamon:

  1. 130 grams/0.5 cup raw cashew nuts
  2. water to soak the cashew nuts
  3. 1 liter/4.2 cups water
  4. 2 sliced bananas
  5. 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  1. Put the nuts in a bowl and cover with water water.
  2. Soak the cashew nuts overnight or at least for about six hours.
  3. Drain the water from the cashew nuts with a sieve and put the cashew nuts in the blender or food processor.
  4. Add the banana and one cup of (cold) water and process.
  5. When the mixture becomes smooth, add the rest of the water and the cinnamon and continue blending.
  6. If necessary, add more water, until your milk gets its desired consistency.
  1. I found myself adding quite a lot of water, so that the milk got a consistency similar to regular milk. This is just a matter of taste; you can make your milk as thick or liquid as you desire.
  2. You can preserve your milk limited. Try to drink it within 3 days and store it in your fridge in a glass bottle.
Great Body & Skin

Other applications of cashew nut milk

Cashew nut milk is incredibly nice to use in your chia pudding (replace the liquid in the recipe with cashew nut milk), buckwheat porridgequinoa porridge or in your superfood cereal.


Curious towards which food processor I use? I currently have a few at home, but I am currently mostly using this food processor.

Pictured below is my Bestron blender. I would not recommend using it; mine broke after I tried blending frozen kale 🙁
