Chef's Notes

For even more creaminess, soak cashews for at least 4 hours. You may strain the nut milk through a fine mesh strainer to remove the sediment, if you like. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Shake before serving. Our frozen dessert recipes will work perfectly by swapping this out for the liquid component.
