Vegan Cashew Horchata {Recipe}

Cashews, dates, water, and cinnamon are all you need to make this rich and refreshing Mexican-inspired drink.

Makes 4 pints

What You Need:
2 tablespoons raw cashew pieces
3 soft Medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
2 cups filtered water
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

What You Do:
Into a blender, combine all ingredients and blend until completely smooth and creamy (approximately) 2 minutes.
