Hands-On Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 2 to 3 Days
1 cup raw unsalted cashews
1 cup filtered water
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
¼ tsp organic lemon zest+ 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
2 oral probiotic capsules
*TIP: Any strength probiotics work but we suggest looking for capsules of at least 5 billion to yield 10 billion CFU total*
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
1 16-oz glass jar with lid, sterilized
- To a bowl, add cashews and enough cold tap water to cover by 1 inch. Let soak at room temperature for 4 to 8 hours. Drain cashews, discarding liquid. In a blender, add cashews, filtered water, maple syrup, lemon zest, juice and cinnamon and blend until smooth. Transfer to a 16-oz jar.
- Open probiotic capsules and stir contents into cashew mixture. Cover jar with a clean tea towel or coffee filter and secure with a rubber band. Let ferment in a warm place away from direct sunlight for 24 to 36 hours, stirring every 12 hours.
- Stir in vanilla. Seal tightly with lid and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
Note: Always add the vanilla at the end as the alcohol can slow the fermentation process.
