Cashew milks are considered part of the nut milk tribe, though cashews are actually seeds of the cashew fruit — not nuts. That being said, if you're allergic to tree nuts or peanuts, you may also be allergic to cashews, so use caution where nut allergies are concerned.

One thing to watch out for is added ingredients like almonds, soy and coconut. But there are "virgin" cashew milks out there — don't worry, we'll help you find them.
