This can be a substitute for so many recipes which use dairy, from whipped cream to enchilada sauce.
2 cups of raw cashews (whole or pieces)
water to cover
- Place cashews in a bowl and cover with water. Let them soak from as little as 2 1/2 hours to overnight. Longer produces a creamier result.
- Strain and discard the water. Place cashews in a blender and add enough water to just cover them. Blend.
- If you are making this for enchiladas then use 1 cup of the cream and add 1 T lime juice.
- If you are making this for a dessert add enough honey or maple syrup to taste.
