vegan - cashew spread

 Hello , 

 Yesterday evening i finally had some spare time , to attempt a trial version of a nutty vegan spread ,  that  i have been craving to make  for some time now . My recipe is so simple that it only uses 3 ingredients ! Plus that means its super nutritious and guilt free .The only other thing that you will definitely need is a food processor . we were lucky enough to have been given an old one from someone , which means my family can use and create loads of great  recipes with ease .
 As it was a first attempt i cannot guarantee that mixture will be consistent with the quantities but I'm sure you can test out how it works best for you .

Now for the three special ingredients:

  • 100g dates 
  • 2 handfuls or 1 cup raw cashew nuts 
 and for a lovely coco taste ,
  • 1-2 tbsp green and blacks coco powder ( or any other brand you have) 
You will also need a medium sized jar .

firstly you will need to organise your equipment , and working space .


you will have to put a little in a time , of the nuts with just one or two days to start . then gradually continue adding more nuts  whilst pulsing the mixture . it should look something like this , with the dates added and blended in as well ...

I you would like to add another yummy dimension to the flavour, add 1-2 tbsp of coco powder , with a pinch of salt if required 


 this is now ready to put in the jar and is good to keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days , enjoy !
