Hi Everyone, Cashew Coffee – did you know this phenomenon exists?
I feel like it’s my personal role in life to bring new and delicious ways to make coffee to this blog.
This Cashew Coffee is great because it is a totally dairy-free/non-dairy way to get a creamy, satisfying cup of coffee.
It’s also satisfying vegetarian, vegan, Paleo, and Gluten-Free diet lifestyles.
A Note on Blenders
If you have a high-powered blender, like a Vitamix, it will have an easier time blending the cashews and you do not have to soak them overnight.
I currently have a Kitchen Aid blender and find that the soaking of the cashews overnight, helps achieve a creamier, more smooth texture.
Keep in mind there may be some cashew bits at the bottom, that just means that you have to blend longer or just make sure you don’t add them into the coffee.
- 1/4 cup cashews, raw, unsalted, soaked overnight (ideally)
- 8 ounces hot black coffee
- sweetener of choice (optional)
- coffee maker
- heat safe mug
- high-powered blender
- 1/4 cup measure

- Add 1/4 cup soaked cashews (8 hours or overnight*) into your blender.
- Pour your 8 ounces hot black coffee into your blender and put the cover on. Place a folded tea towel over the top just in case, so hot coffee doesn't come out the top. (I keep my hand over the tea towel as it's blending). Blend for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until all the cashews are fully blended.
- Pour the cashew coffee into a heat-safe coffee mug, optionally add a sweetener of choice (this can also be done when blending if you know exactly the amount of sweetener you want), and enjoy!
