Raw cashews

Creamy cashews’ mild flavor make them perfect for thickening sauces, soups, and substituting for creams and spreads. These ‘creams’ are fast and easy to make and can be used as a substitute for creamy dairy products like cream cheese, sour cream, or whipped cream. Use the sweet one on Chia Pudding or a baked sweet potato and the sour one on Mushroom Tacos or bagels.

Again, release all expectations and give it a try…
