cashews-1502157milk-2-1498976-639x814 (471 x 600)When cashews are blended with water, the result is a creamy liquid referred to as cashew milk. Cashew milk is lactose-free, but the nutrients vary depending on whether you make it at home or buy a commercially prepared product. One cup of homemade cashew milk made using 1/4 cup of cashews has 189 calories, 6 grams protein, 15 grams of fat and 10 grams of carbohydrates.

Not only do cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, approximately 82% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus about 66% of this unsaturated fatty acid content are heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, similar to those found in olive oil. Studies of diabetic patients show that monounsaturated fat, when added to a low-fat diet, can help to reduce high triglyceride levels.
