  1. If you don’t have a high-speed blender, start by soaking the cashews overnight. If you have a high-speed blender, soak them in hot water for about 15 minutes, drain and rinse. 
  2. Add the cashews, nutritional yeast, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and water into the blender and blend on high until you reach the desired consistency.


Important: If your blender’s base is large, you may need to double the recipe for easier blending.

For thinner consistency, add about a tbsp of water.
