Method

1 hr (+ 3 hours for soaking)
 
To make the cashew nut milk drain and rinse the soaked cashews and add to a blender with 3 cups of water, blend until very fine, then pass through a sieve lined with a muslin cloth (save any remaining pulp as ‘cashew nut flour’).

Bring the milk to a simmer in a saucepan, add all the remaining ingredients, including a grating of fresh turmeric, whisk well and  reduce the heat to low. Leave to simmer for 5 minutes, then strain and allow to cool. Blend in a high-powered blender with 1 cup ice cubes for a frosted version, or allow to cool completely and serve over lots of ice.
