Light and refreshing vegan strawberry milk is extra creamy by way of cashews. Sweetened with dates and strawberries, this enticing beverage tastes like summer itself.

Some things just take you back to childhood…
The smell of the lake.
And drinking ice cold strawberry milk.
Add a straw and start slurping. Suddenly, you’re transported to a summer of bare feet & pigtails all over again.
But this time around, strawberry milk is even better than you remember.
As a kid, my strawberry milk was made with artificial powder.
Today’s vegan strawberry milk recipe is made with actual strawberries. They are blended with raw cashews, water, Medjool dates for sweetness, and a splash of vanilla. Just a few natural ingredients.
The flavor bursts with ripe berries. And the milk has a viscous, full-bodied creaminess because of the cashews.
GoWISE Heating Blender
To make this strawberry cashew milk, I used my GoWise High-Performance Professional Heating Blender.
You may remember that last year around this time, I received this blender to try out in my kitchen. I shared a recipe for vegan tomato soup.
The entire soup was made in the blender from start to finish. And since it actually has a heating element built into it, I was able to sauté onions & garlic right inside of the glass pitcher, as well as get the soup bubbling hot.
For vegans, the true mark of quality in a high-speed blender is if it can fully blend raw cashews without needing to soak them first.
The GoWISE heating blender has a 1400W motor, 8 stainless steel blades, and produces 2.0 peak horsepower. So it has no problem breaking down raw cashews without missing a beat.
And of course, you can use it for today’s vegan strawberry milk recipe.
How to make this recipe
Put water, cashews, frozen or fresh strawberries, pitted Medjool dates, a pinch of salt, and splash of vanilla into a high-speed blender.
(If you don’t have a high-speed blender, check out the notes section of the recipe box for workarounds.)
Blend until completely smooth. (You’ll know it’s totally smooth when you stop hearing any crunches from the raw cashews breaking up in the blender.)
You can drink the vegan strawberry milk right away. But if at all possible, I recommend transferring it to a covered container, and refrigerating it for at least an hour or two.
The vegan strawberry milk tastes even better when it’s ice cold. And the cashews continue to thicken, making the drink even more luscious.
Vegan strawberry milk
- Put all of the ingredients into a high speed blender. Blend until completely smooth. (You'll know that the cashews are fully broken down once you stop hearing any crackles or crunches of them breaking up.)
- You can drink the strawberry cashew milk right away. But for an even tastier drink, move it to a covered container, and refrigerate for at least an hour or two. The cashew milk will continue to thicken, making it even creamier. And the flavor is best when it's ice cold.
