Do you love lattes or coffee drinks like Cafe Au Laits? Drink recipes like this are getting easier and easier to make at home. Both Sammie and I don’t drink milk. We recently had the chance to try Silk Cashewmilk. So I thought I’d share a little bit about using cashew milk and how to make a Cafe Au Lait.
There are so many non-dairy options coming out to use. We typically enjoy soy or almond milk in our cereal, tea, and coffee. Then I found we preferred the lighter taste of almond milk. Silk has been a brand that we have enjoyed using.
We were happy to try using Silk’s Cashewmilk in our morning routines and also making our favorite coffee drinks and smoothies. I found out that Silk has a Pinterest board with recipes and ideas (I put a link at the end of the post). I can’t wait to try or adapt a few recipes I spotted on there.
Enjoy Silk Cashewmilk
Silk’s Cashewmilk is irresistibly creamy and delicious. Made with the special creaminess of cashews. It is an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D.
Honestly, it tastes creamier than skim milk. You can store and use it just like any other milk. Bonus way fewer calories!
How To Make Cafe Au Lait With Cashew Milk
One of my favorite drinks is a piping hot coffee, latte, or au lait. In the morning I love having a coffee drink but, I also love a good latte. I had an espresso machine but, gave it away. Then I invested in an automatic Nespresso machine.
Now don’t leave me if you don’t have an espresso machine because you can make an Au Lait on the stovetop by following the directions and proportions below!
Directions – Steam a little Silk Cashewmilk in a pot or steamer on your stove. Do this on low, slowly just to warm it up on moderate heat, stirring until warm. Then pour the heated cashew milk over your coffee that is already poured into your coffee cup.
- RECIPE – Use 2/3 cup Silk Cashewmilk to 1/3 cup coffee! So, easy! Alternatively, you can use a milk frother/steamer.
Have you tried cashew milk?
You can use non-dairy cashew milk in your cereal, oatmeal, French toast, mash potatoes, just substitute it in recipes. Drizzle over things like a cobbler. (Note: There is not enough fat to whip it)
Silk Cashewmilk has two low-calorie options. Woot! Made with cashews it’s free of dairy, lactose, gluten-free…….Hello health nuts! It also has no artificial flavors or colors! What’s not to love about that! Bam!
