  • 1 cup raw cashews or cashew pieces soaked overnight (must not be roasted or salted)
  • ½ cup almond or hemp milk or cold water (you may need a little more, depending on how thick you want it)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar or honey
  • 1-2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • Juice of 1 small lemon


  • Cover cashews with water and soak for a few hours, or overnight.
  • Pour off all water, and place nuts in food processor or blender. Add remaining ingredients.
  • Puree until completely smooth and creamy.
  • Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to a week.


Use in any recipe that calls for sour cream. If your sour cream seems too tart, add a little more agave nectar or honey.
