To spot a trend in 2016, all you have to do is see what’s happening on Pinterest. Case in point: The site has seen a 40 percent jump in users pinning, sharing, and liking photos and videos involving cashew milk, which has us thinking it just might be the new “it” nut milk. (Though there are 13 types of milk that do your body good.)
If you’re tempted to make the switch from the ever-popular almond milk, though, don’t do it solely for health reasons. When almond and cashew milk go head-to-head, they’re about the same nutrition-wise, says Ashley Pettit, a holistic nutritionist and fitness chef. “Unsweetened cashew milk has an incredibly low calorie profile, but it’s only five calories less than almond milk,” she says. Unsweetened cashew milk generally has 25 calories per cup compared to the 30 found in unsweetened almond milk. Fat and other nutrients, like calcium and vitamins D, E, and A, are about equal too.
