Recently, Ashley and I have noticed a new nut milk at the grocery store; cashew milk. Curious we grabbed a carton. We had the fun idea to put it to a blind test against our usual almond milk.
The difference in color was obvious, the cashew milk had a more yellow hue to it and looked thicker. The taste was also noticeable. I had almost a salty flavor and was far creamier. It might be great for baking but was not quite as good for our cereal, and hot chocolates.
All in all, there was a clear difference. The cashew milk is not likely to replace our use of almond but is not a bad nut milk by any means. If I were to simply drink a glass of nut milk, I think I would prefer cashew to the watery taste of almond however, the girls vote still goes to almond,
The milk test was a nice indoor silly activity while we were getting hammered with our latest snow storm. In the past 7 days, we have gotten just shy of 4 feet of snow. Brutal. Welcome back to Maine!
