  • 2 cups cashews, raw
  • 1/2 cup water, to go in the blender
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice, fresh if you can about 2 lemons
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Cover the cashews with water and let soak for 1/2 to 1 hour.  This will make them easier to blend.   If you have a high powered blender then no soaking is necessary.

  2. Drain the cashews and then add all of the ingredients to the blender.

  3. Blend until smooth.  It's that easy.
