Dairy-free sour cream (Vegan, raw)

I fed this to my hubby and he looked at me with surprise in his eyes and said “wow…I’m actually impressed how close that is to real sour cream!”…and then polished off the entire batch.  It’s delicious, easy and you can make it in your own kitchen in about 5 minutes!

Based from: http://ohsheglows.com/2014/02/05/my-favourite-vegan-chili-with-homemade-sour-cream/


1/2 cup cashews (either raw or roasted and unsalted)

1/4 – 1/2 cup water (if you soak them, you’ll need less)

2 teaspoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Dash of salt


1. Ideally….soak the cashews in water for 4-12 hours in the fridge to soften them up.  Drain. I didn’t soak mine the first time I made this. It still tastes great but the texture won’t be totally smooth.

2. Add all ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth.  Scrap down the sides a few times.  Adjust the water and lemon juice until it suits your preference!
