Cashew butter with roasted cashews

Roasted cashews can be blended into a delicious creamy nut butter, ideal for spreading on toast or adding to smoothies & sips.

 

  • 2 cups Lion roasted cashews
  • 1-2 tbsp oil (such as grapeseed or vegetable oil), optional (for a creamier texture)
  • Salt, to taste (optional)
  1. Blend the roasted cashews in a high-speed blender or mixer. If you prefer a creamier texture, add 1-2 tablespoons of neutral oil at this stage.
  2. Blend the cashews quickly, scraping down the sides as needed until they break down and release their oils.
  3. Continue blending until the cashews reach a smooth and creamy consistency similar to peanut butter.
  4. Once the cashew butter is smooth and creamy, store it in a clean jar or airtight container. It can be stored at room temperature for up to a week or in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life.
  5. Enjoy your homemade cashew butter spread on toast, drizzled over oatmeal, or used in your favourite recipes!
