Healthy Cashew Cream Cheese Sub

Posted on: August 15, 2013

This is a recipe that I use for making dips. Consider this as a sub for cream cheese in equal parts. It really helps to have a  food processor for this recipe. I like to make a batch and then separate it and make 1/2 of it herb and garlic to spread on a bagel and the other half I may make into a dip or some other use. You must use raw cashews, not roasted or salted cashews. here’s how to do it:

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups raw, organic cashews
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend into a smooth cream. Add just a few tablespoons of water at first, and ad an additional tbsp. at a time as you blend until it reaches the consistency you are aiming for.
  2. If you enjoy cream cheese with fresh herbs, add a heaping tbsp. of green onions, chives or any other fresh herb to the mix as you blend.
  3. Enjoy on your favourite bread, toast or just with as a dip for apples, carrots etc.
