Cashew Butter

Peanut butter is undoubtedly one of the yummiest spreads, I think cashew butter tops it! Cashew nuts are a great source of essential antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. This butter is perfect spread on celery, low carb breads, used in sauces or simply on cooked poultry.

Equipment required

1 hand blender with the processor attachment or a processor
1 small baking tray

Shopping list makes a ramekin sized quantity

1 cup of raw cashews
Pinch of sea salt
1 tsp of xylitol (optional, if you want it to have some sweetness)

Method to the madness

Roast the cashews at 180 degrees for about 5 mins, until they are golden

Let them cool for a minute and then add to the processor with the salt and xylitol

Process the mixture until it becomes creamy, this takes quite a while (mine about 5 mins) don’t dismay, it will happen. Ensure you scrape the sides of the bowl every so often so the mixture gets processed evenly

Place the butter in a jar or ramekin and use as you please. ENJOY!
