Simple Vegan Cashew Sour Cream Recipe


Making vegan cashew sour cream is so simple! And I promise you that it tastes better than buying store bought sour cream (vegan or not). I've served this up to many people who are not vegetarian or vegan and they love it! They have said they like it better than traditional sour cream or any they have had before. This is so easy to make that you can whip a batch up minutes before you need it, or you can make it ahead of time and keep it refrigerated. I use cashews to make so many vegan items and I love it. They are healthy, it doesn't matter if they are raw, roasted, etc. (trust me, I've tried different ways and it always comes out the same). Plus, there is no need to soak the cashews ahead of time. I've tried it both ways and it still comes out the same way, it literally  makes no difference. Whip up some of this vegan cashew sour cream to use on your peirogis, baked potatoes, tacos, nachos, mushroom stroganoff, etc. It's versatile, simple, healthy, and delicious!

Simple Vegan Cashew Sour Cream Recipe

1 cup of cashews
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice (I use bottled, because I always have it on hand)
1 tablespoon sugar (I use Florida Crystals)

Put the cashews in the blender cup and put water up to just the top of them. Add in the other ingredients. Blend until smooth. Give it a little taste and see what you think. If you like it to be more sour, then add a little more lemon juice. If you think it's too sour, then add a little more sugar. That's it! 

I put it in a container and use it that day for our meal and keep the leftovers for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. We usually find things over the next few days to use it in/on, but by the time it goes to the refrigerator there's not much left anyway. You can adjust the recipe if you  want to make a smaller or larger batch. As a side note, it does have a light beige color to it, which doesn't bother me. A lot of foods that are real white are so because they use harmful ingredients to make them that way, such as titanium dioxide. I'd rather have the natural color and skip the chemicals.
