A cup of perfectly brewed tea is my favorite way to take some time out just for me. I tend to over schedule myself, but once I take even 10 minutes to sit down to drink a little tea I’m relaxed and recharged. For me a cuppa is not complete without some Cashew Almond Vegan Creamer for Tea.

Do You Take Your Tea with Vegan Creamer?
In my opinion, hot tea needs a thick, rich creamer to elevate it to the perfect drink. Today, I have a super-easy cashew almond vegan creamer recipe for you.
I made this Cashew Almond Vegan Creamer for Tea kinda plain so it would let the flavors of your favorite tea shine through. My go-to tea is Earl Grey, but I love a spiced tea too.
I want you to think of the recipe as a base. It’s a plain unsweetened creamer which can be hard to find at a store.
But you can sweeten it, add your favorite extract flavors, or even blend in some dates to make it fancier for plain coffee or tea.
We had a traditional hot tea drink with cinnamon and orange that I grew up on in Winston-Salem. I love that Bigelow‘s Constant Comment reminds me of that same childhood Christmas tea. It has a bright orange flavor that is perfect with their spice blend.
Many of you will be visiting friends and relatives for the holidays. One of the things I love about Bigelow Tea is you can find it everywhere. While I was traveling back from Charleston this weekend I was able to grab some at a Walmart in the middle of nowhere.
There’s no excuse to miss out on a relaxing cup of tea wherever you are. Plus while you are at the store you can pick up some nuts to make this creamer!
How Do You Make Vegan Creamer for Tea?
I used half cashews and half almonds in my creamer, but you can use just one or the other. I love the richness that cashews add.
Be sure to always buy broken pieces of cashews or other expensive nuts whenever you can. They are so much cheaper.
Then you will soak the almonds and cashews overnight, blend, and strain.
Do You Strain Homemade Vegan Creamer with a Nut Milk Bag or a Fine Mesh Strainer?
Once the ingredients are blended you’ll strain them through a nut milk bag or fine mesh strainer. I like to use a fine mesh strainer, but there are a few other options I’m trying out too. I’ll post more about them later.
There will be a ton of pulp leftover. Instead of throwing it away, I like to toss it in the batter when I’m making dog cookies.
You can also dry it in the dehydrator to use later or to grind into flour.
