The Ultimate Lactose-Free Milk Replacement

…is cashew cream (or milk)!

Watch Tal Ronen make cashew cream ##http://www.talronnen.com/video/?video=4##here##.

I’m somewhat lactose intolerant, which sucks because my all-time favorite comfort food has always been Campbell’s Tomato Soup made with milk. It tastes absolutely awful with soymilk. But when I tried Tal Ronen’s recipe for cashew milk/cream and made said soup… it was amazing. It looked right, it cooked right, and it tasted perfect. I haven’t tasted that in literally years.

I think cashew milk works better than soy in this instance due to the higher fat content, but the neutral flavor helps too.

The only problem I had, using a less sophisticated blender than Ronen’s, was separating the milk from the crushed up bits of cashew solids. I tried cheesecloth, and that was a wee bit messy. Perhaps a nut milk bag or creative use of ladies’ hosiery would work better next time!

  1. You can buy cashew milk. I’m very fond of almond milk. And hazelnut milk is THE BEST for hot chocolate.

    I am making oatmeal this morning with light coconut milk….we’ll see how taht turns out.
