Cleansing Cashew Milk + Juice Cleanses

Cleansing Cashew MilkPerfectly creamy, velvety milk made from cashews. Perfect end-of-day drink when you’re on a juice cleanse.

Every 3 months, like clockwork, my body craves a juice cleanse. February, May, August and October. Year in and year out. It’s quite cool.

Last time I got the cleansing urge was in August. We had just moved from Montreal back to Calgary, Kevin was starting a new job, we were living at my parents house while we looked for a home AND we got engaged. My body was craving a cleanse but I just didn’t have the time, patience or attention span to dedicate a week of my life to making juices… so I tried something new – a kit cleanse. Have you heard of them?

Basically, you choose the type of juice cleanse you want to do (light, moderate, intense, that sort of thing), a company supplies you with your juices, and you cleanse… stress-free and juicer-free. If you’re leading a busy life, it’s quite the treat.

After a bit of reconnaissance work, I learned that Total Cleanse (a Toronto-based company) delivers their kit cleanses across Canada. Bonus! So, I treated myself to a 5-day Purify Cleanse to see if the kit-style cleanse could work for me. It was fabulous. So fabulous that I just HAD to do it again and share the experience with you.

Cleansing Cashew Milk

Starting today, I’ll be bustin’ out 5 days of cleansing with my Total Cleanse kit cleanse. My juices are in the fridge (Total Cleanse juices – Green Energy, Lemonade and Red Energy), and I’m ready to rock this.

If you want to cleanse along with me, and aren’t down with the kit thing, check out these homemade Healthful Pursuit cleanses:

And the first recipe I think you should make? Cleanse or no cleanse… is this cleansing cashew milk recipe. Cashews are naturally low in carbohydrates, high in healthy fats, rich in protein and fibre and are cholesterol free. This milk helps to boost the metabolism, support energy production and flush the body of toxins during the cleansing process.

If on a juice cleanse, drinking 1/2 cup of this cashew milk at the end of each day is a GREAT idea!

  1. I’m wondering why you didn’t need to strain the milk after blending it. Most nut milk recipes require straining out the excess pulp to avoid a gritty textute. Does this really taste fine without? If so, that’s awesome! Also, I have a ninja. Do you think it would be powerful enough to make this?

  2. please how can i get the following ingredients:
    * Vanilla extract
    * Cinnamon
    * Agave nectar
    for the processing of cashew milk.

  3. i from south east of nigeria, we have many plantation of cashew trees, but we are not using it to do it. therefore i need more teaching about processing of cashew apple juice and milk.
    i mean other ingredients to use in the processing of juice and milk.
    thanks and be bless

  4. hi there. Do you know why cashew milk is usually a part of a cleanse instead of almond milk? Is there a particular factor about cashews that help with cleanses in a way that almonds don’t? Thank you so very much for the posting and for any knowledge you might be able to share about the nut milk choices for cleanses. <3

  5. Hi LeeAnne,
    I have been watching your website for a while now. The 3 day juicing caught my attention so I bought. Juicer and have been following your suggestions for 3 days now. I love most of the combinations! And will make juicing part of my life. Thank you!

    • Hi Holly! I’m so thrilled that you’ve enjoyed the cleansing and juicing experience :)
