Dairy-free White Russian

Homemade cashew milk makes this dairy-free white Russian lip smacking good!

Dairy-free White Russian | Winni Wanderer


Cashew cream*

·       1 cup raw cashews

·       2 cups water, divided (plus more for soaking)

·       1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup, to taste

·       2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Per cocktail

·       1 ounce vodka

·       1 ounce Kahlua (rum and coffee liqueur)

. 2 ounces cashew cream


1.     To make the cashew cream: For ultra creamy results, soak the cashews in water for 2 to 4 hours. Drain them, then rinse the cashews under running water.

2.     Place the drained cashews in your blender and add 1 cup of water. Blend the mixture on high until the cashews are totally pulverized and the mixture is very creamy. Add the remaining 1 cup of water, the maple syrup and vanilla extract, and blend again. Taste, and blend in additional maple syrup if you’d like it to be sweeter. (If your cashew milk still has tiny bits of cashews in it, pour it through a fine metal sieve into a glass.)

3.     To make a cocktail: Fill a short cocktail glass with ice. Pour in the vodka, followed by the Kahlua and cashew cream. Lightly swirl the contents with a spoon and enjoy.


*Cashew Cream Yield: This cashew cream will yield about 2 ¼ cups, which is enough for 9 cocktails. Leftovers make great coffee creamer; just whisk or shake the mixture to recombine before serving. Cashew cream will keep well in the refrigerator for about 4 days.
