About Cashew and the Creaminess of Cashew Butter in the Cashew Milk

Fig. 01. Creamy cashew milk

Have you seen the cashew tree? Do you use any part of this plant?

If yes, what part and what is the purpose?


From some sources, we know that cashew plant originates from Brazil, then spreading to the countries along the equator line and the other tropical areas that have good:
- soil
- temperature
- and the length of sunlight for this plan to grow.

The plants can reach between 26 – 50 feet (or 8-15 m) in height.

Cashew (from word Caju) belongs to Anacardiaceae family, and the species Anacardium occidentale is most commercial plant.

People can use any part from the cashew plants.

From a cashew tree, people use almost all its properties: leaves, barks, seeds, shell of seeds.

Cashew apple (enlarge fruit ripe), seeds, wood and other parts are used as following:

- the fresh fruits or cashew “apple” can be eaten raw.

- juice from fruits for beverage, fermented for wine, or for jam and jelly

- gum is used in pharmaceutical as substitute for the expensive Arabic gum

- oil from the seed- shell for varnishes

- seeds also for oil and milk

- seeds for snacks in vary presentations, such as roasted cashew or chocolate cashew

- timber for furniture and charcoal

The properties of the cashew plants are also used as folk medicine.

Different countries use different part of cashew for preventing and healing the signs and symptoms of the certain disease process.

The cashew tree does not grow around here. Luckily, we can enjoy the seeds, either, raw, roast, or any cooked cashew seeds. We are still able to get the benefits of seeds from the cashew tree.

Beside seeds, the cashew milk is also available here. I got cashew milk from Silk. I was looking for Soy milk, but I had met Cashew milk. This milk is new for me, so I took it for a try.

This cashew milk has luxurious creaminess. From the box I learn that this milk has no cholesterol and no saturated fat. The cashew milk has 50% more Calcium than dairy milk.

This milk is a quite thicker than dairy whole milk and soy milk. The richer creamy looks good for my smoothies. Now, I have a plan to make smoothies this weekend.

Do you like smoothies, and what milk do you prefer?

  11. I like cashew butter. But I never saw a cashew tree. I even think that in Portugal there is no Cajueiro. If it exists, it will be under a different name. I liked the blog

  12. Oh, I really like Silk's nondairy heavy cream for my coffee. So delightful. I love their yogurt too. Since I am lactose intollerant these days this is the only way to go.

  15. I love cashews and used to eat them, until I found out that my daughter has peanut, pistachio and cashew allergies, so sadly, no more unless I get the chance to eat them out.

  30. We call cashew seeds a nut.
    The nut mix I use daily also has Cashew.
    I use nuts and seeds to speed up my metabolism in low-fat natural yogurt.
    As smoothies, I use low-calorie ice cream, including sugar-free orange juice or other juice.
    I don’t think cashew milk is for sale here. I'm looking at a selection of stores.
    Have a nice May!

  41. I love cashews but have not tried the milk. Cashew butter is delicious but super expensive! When it comes to smoothies, I like using yogurt for the dairy. :)
