Uh oh!! Did you forget to soak your cashews? No worries! Check out the ‘quick-soak method’ in my blog post above. Now only 30 minutes stands between you and decadent cashew cream!
Author:This Mess is Ours
Prep Time:8 minutes
Total Time:8 minutes
1.5 cups raw unsalted cashews
3/4 cup filtered water, plus more for soaking
juice of half of 1 large lemon
1/2 – 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
Place the cashews in a bowl and fill with filtered water at least an inch above the cashews. Allow the cashews to soak for 4-6 hours or up to overnight. Drain and rinse the cashews well.
Place the cashews, filtered water, lemon juice, and salt in a high powered blender or food processor. Blend until desired consistency, stopping to scrape the sides as necessary.
This cashew cream will last in the refrigerator for 3-4 days and can be frozen for up to 6 months. If you choose to freeze it be sure to run it through the blender really quick after you defrost it to eliminate any lumps.
