  • Food Processor



  • In a food processor, blend cashews (drained) on high for 1 minute or until cashews are chopped and coarse.
  • Next, place coconut cream, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and sea salt into the food processor and continue to blend on high for 3 to 5 minutes or until smooth and creamy. Scrape the sides of the food processor down as needed.


Quick Soaking Method:
Place cashews into a large glass bowl and add 2 to 4 cups (enough to cover the cashews) with boiling water. Allow cashews to soak in the boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes or until they are plump. Carefully, drain the cashews and rinse well before blending.
This recipe makes 2 cups; 2 tablespoons per serving.
