Dairy-free cashew lime crema, perfect for tacos or cooling off any spicy dish.


  • 1/2 cup raw cashews (soaked overnight, drained, and rinsed)
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • pinch of salt (optional)


  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.


There is no need to soak the cashews if you have a high-speed blender. 

Otherwise soak the raw cashews overnight or add cashews to a bowl, cover with boiling water, and soak for an hour.
