1 lb of raw cashews.
I soaked cashews in cold water over night in the fridge. My mom soaks hers in warm (not hot) water for 15-30 minutes. I also read some recipes where they didn’t soak at all. Rinse and put in blender. I wanted mine thicker so I added water just to the top. If you want it less thick go an inch above the cashews with the water. Blend until smooth (will be slightly grainy.) I have a Vita Mix and have read that if you don’t have one you may have to strain out some chunks. It will refrigerate for up to a week. I freeze it in smaller containers and take them out as I need them. Makes 5 cups.
