If you follow me on instagram, you may have gotten a sneak peak of my overnight cashew milk coffee. It was toooo good, and I was itching to post it! I am thrilled to finally share this recipe with you, because this, my little friends, is a game changer. I kid you not. For starters, it’s delicious. It not only does the job of providing you with your daily caffeine rX, but it contains cinnamon, vanilla and of course, cashew milk…quite possibly my new fav flavor combo. This recipe is a complete game changer for me because I have been trying to cut back on my dairy intake for a while now. I have been having more stomach issues, reminiscent of getting very sick before I gave up gluten 3 years ago, and as previously mentioned, my skin has been doing some not so fun things. I am constantly reading articles about nutrition, health and wellness, and I’ll try anything once to chase what I like to call a “health high.” When I first gave up gluten it was amazing how I instantly felt better and my stomach issues had virtually disappeared. I was energized, had brighter skin and felt amazing. I haven’t had cheese or yogurt in a couple of weeks, but I’ve been seriously struggling to find an alternative to the organic milk that marries with my morning coffee. I’m not a big milk drinker, and I use coconut milk in my daily green smoothie, but for some reason, I always crave a creamy, dreamy morning coffee. I’ve tried almond milk, coconut milk, coconut milk creamer, and other non dairy alternatives, but nothing was creamy enough for my picky taste buds. Until, enter: cashew milk.
This recipe is the bomb dot com because it’s not only dairy free and delicious, BUT it’s prepped overnight. When you wake up all you have to do is literally grab and go. Game changer people. I’m telling ya.
Overnight Cashew Milk Coffee
- Make coffee and let sit to cool. I recommend making the coffee before you make dinner, then assembling the rest of the recipe after dinner.
- Pour cool coffee into mason jar, and add cashew milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
- Close the lid tightly and shake to mix together.
- Refrigerate overnight and drink immediately upon removing from refrigerator.
