Ultimate Cashew Cream

  • Total Time: 8 hours
  • Yield: 8 1x
  • Diet: Vegan



1 cup raw cashews, soaked and drained

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 lemon, juiced

1/4 cup water (use less water, about 2 Tbsp, for a thicker consistency)

1/8 tsp salt


Soak raw cashews in water overnight or for 8 hours. A quicker method is to pour boiling water over cashews and let sit for 2 hours to soften. An even quicker than the quicker method is to boil the cashews in water for 4 minutes, then remove from heat and rinse in cool water. 

Put soaked and drained cashews, along with other ingredients, into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Add more water for thinner consistency.
