Cashew Nut Cream
Prep time
Total time
*If you are not using a high-powered blender like a Nutribullet, strain the cashew nut milk through a sieve , stocking, or nut bag.*
Recipe type: Healthy dairy free
  • 1 cup of cashews soaked in cold water overnight
  • pinch of salt or squeew of lemon for savory cream
  • drop of natural sweetener if using for dessert
  1. Drain cashews and rinse.
  2. Place in a blender with filtered water that covers the nuts by 1 inch.
  3. Blend on high for several minutes until very smooth.
  4. If you are looking for a thicker cream, just reduce the amount of water in the blender so that it only just slightly covers the cashews.
  5. Add a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon for a savory cream or a drop of a natural sweetener if you plan on using it in a dessert.
  6. I use cashew nut cream in place of regular cream in soups, casseroles, pasta sauces and desserts.
