Dairy free and insanely yummy! This is my new favorite condiment!
In a blender add the coconut water, cashews, garlic, salt, and lemon juice. Blend it until it’s thick and creamy and totally smooth.
Add the zest of half a lime to the crema and fold it in.
Use it right away or pour into a container, cover, and refrigerate.
Quick Tip #1 from Ester at Nurture My Gut: If you have a high speed blender, you’re good to use the cashews as is, but to help them break up more easily you can soak them in hot water for 20 minutes, rinse and drain them and you’re good to go!
Quick Tip #2: This crema is perfect for saucing up your favorite Mexican meals, adding to roasted veggies, tossing with pasta, using as a salad dressing, and SO much more!
