How to Make Vegan Sour Cream

Making vegan sour cream is super easy and it tastes great! For several years now, I've been making vegan sour cream with cashews. Why cashews? Because they are great! They are healthy and versatile, so I use them often. I love knowing that when I add some of this vegan sour cream to my food that I'm using a healthy topping. Once you try it out, you will love how easy and delicious it is!

Recipe for Vegan Sour Cream

What you need:
1 cup cashews
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar/sweetener

What to do:
The cashews do not need to be soaked, raw or do anything special to them. I use whatever cashews I have on hand and need in the moment. Put the cashews in the blender and add water only to the top of the cashews. Add the other ingredients. Blend until smooth. Taste it to see if it is too sour or not sour enough. If it's too sour, add a little more sugar/sweetener, and blend again. If it's not sour enough, add a little more apple cider vinegar and blend again. Usually the recipe above comes out perfect, but every once in a while I have to make a slight adjustment to taste. Put it in the refrigerator when done and use it to top baked potatoes, tacos, pierogi's, etc. Yum!

I do realize that you can buy vegan sour cream at the store, and for years I did that. However, the more I have learned about ingredients over the years, the less I've wanted to eat those products. They may be vegan, but they often contain ingredients that are harmful to your intestines. I'd rather have something like this, which is healthier and doesn't contain any questionable or harmful ingredients (barring you don't have a nut allergy, of course).
