Basic Cashew Cream Recipe

This sounds more fiddly & long winded than it actually is. I promise you that it will take about 15 minutes. The most difficult bit is remembering to soak the nuts for about 4 hours before. This activates the nuts, which basically means starting the germination process making the nutrients more accessible for digestion & absorption into the body. It also softens the nut making it much easier to process & a lot creamier!

So here we go……


  • Put 150g of cashew nuts that have been soaked for 3-4 hrs, drained & rinsed into a food processor or strong blender.
  • Add 150ml of filtered water. I suggest you add half of this to begin with & then slowly add the rest depending on the consistency you desire. (Less water for making ‘cheese’, more water for making runny sauces, such as chocolate sauce.)
  • Blend well until smooth. (this can take a good few minutes)
