Plant milk was obtained from cashew seeds and locally prepared soy milk kept as reference standard. The prepared milk samples were analyzed against proximate, minerals and sensory attribute, while sensory evaluation was done according to difference and preference test. Cashew milk sample had an attributes white in color and 81.7% milk yield. Cashew milk was significantly higher in fiber and ash contents. Cashew milk also consist significantly higher amounts of potassium (68.1mg/100ml), calcium (21.9mg/100ml), magnesium (38.2mg/100ml), zinc (0.85mg/100ml) and iron (0.8mg/100ml). Sensory evaluation results show significant differences for both milk samples. Cashew milk (1.91) and soymilk (2.08) were indicate non-significant difference (p>0.05) in mouth feel. Cashew milk was highly significant (p< 0.05) for other sensory attributes. Cashew milk is nutrient dense as compare to soy and dairy milks with low calories. Nutritional benefits of cashew milk promoting cardiovascular health and reduce the deficiencies of trace mineral such as, zinc and iron.
