All-purpose cashew cream is a basic vegan cream that can be developed further with a variety of ingredients – sweet or savory.



1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight *see notes

1/2 cup water (or less)

*1/4 teaspoon sea salt (optional)


  • Place cashews and water in a high speed blender and mix until creamy
  • Add more water, if desired


*Soaking the cashews overnight softens the cashews. Toss the soaking liquid and rinse the cashews after. If pressed for time, with a high speed blender like a Vitamix or equivalent, you can still get a creamy consistency without soaking.
