Milked Cashews™

Cashews and coffee. A natural combination? You may not think so, but think again. Elmhurst Milked Cashews™ is a subtly flavored, barista-approved, coffee-enhancing wonder! And the surprises don’t end there. It makes some really good soups and sauces – or you can just pour it in a glass and drink away.

Elmhurst Milked Cashews™ is barista-approved! Cashews strike us a happy little nut, unassuming and forever smiling. But don’t be fooled, these guys have a way of surprising. When we made cashew milk and sent it into town, we found it in… the coffee houses and cafés? That’s right. It foams beautifully, with a perfectly subtle flavor, leading us to ask an important question: do you cashew?

We have an idea. You should cashew, and treat yourself to a Milked Cashews™ sort of day: a pleasure in your morning coffee, an enriching glass in the afternoon, and a sauce recipe by evening.Made with only

Fun Facts

Where cashews come from:

Cashews can’t grow in the United States. They are a tropical nut through and through, limited to that central band that bisects the Earth: North and South. Cashews originated in Brazil and navigated the globe in the 16th century via Portuguese trade. Today less than 5 percent of the world’s supply comes from Brazil, but that’s enough to fuel our cashew milk.

What they’re made of:

Cashew trees, which you won’t see around here, actually produce two fruits. One, the large yellow or red cashew apple, is a “false fruit” – it doesn’t have any seeds. The real fruit, attached to the end of the apple, is a double-shell which encases the familiar crescent-shaped nut – technically a seed.

Cashews are about 50 percent fat (a vast majority unsaturated), 33 percent carbohydrate, and 15 percent protein. All of this substance makes them a satisfying snack – whether whole or as a nut milk. It also provides nutritional validation for a flavor that excites, and is integral to certain international cuisines, such as Indian and Pakistani. As a distinctly-flavored milk replacement, our own Milked Cashews™ enjoys baking, cooking, and coffee applications.

Fast facts:

  • Cashew trees are evergreens, keeping their leaves year-round. They can grow over 40 feet, but the 20-foot dwarf cashew is commercially preferred.
  • The word “cashew” comes from the Portuguese cajú, which is itself derived from the indigenous Tupian word for “nut that produces itself.”
  • The world’s largest cashew tree is located in Brazil. It’s the size of five football fields, leaving the visitor the illusion of walking through a forest.
