  • 2 cups raw cashews

What to do

  1. Blitz the raw cashews in the food processor for around 20-25 minutes.

Note: Your food processor may overheat - Give it a couple of minutes to rest after every 10 minutes. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides every now and again. Do not be tempted to add liquid. Cashew butter will turn into a thick dough before it turns into a butter. Soak cashews in 1 cup of water for at least 2-4 hours before processing.
