Cashew Sour Cream

This is the one recipe that you must make. The first time you make it I estimate it to take you ten minutes. However, second time I bet you can get it down to five minutes. Its a staple in our fridge for the past few weeks. All three of us LOVE it. On everything. You can put it on protein, tacos, pasta, salad. If you have ever analysed the comercial nut cheeses you find in the supermarket you will notice most are full of crap that you cant prounounce. So many extra unecesary additives that you dont want in you body. Make this delicious Cashew Sour Cream with only whole ingredients and your tummy and tastebuds will be forever grateful.
