2 cups raw cashews (or use raw pecans, walnuts or almonds)
2-4 tbsp. canola oil
1/4 tsp. salt
Pinch sugar (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375*F. Place the cashews in a single layer on a rimmed baking tray and toast cashews for 5-6 minutes, until golden. Remove and set aside.
  2. Place 2 tablespoons oil in the Bowl and add the toasted cashews. Blend on 2 for 10 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, if needed.
  3. Add up to 2 tablespoons oil, the salt and sugar and blend on 2 for 5-10 seconds, or until very smooth. Store in the refrigerator until use.
  4. Go ahead, embrace your inner meal prepper. We hear you, making smoothies the night before is a huge time saver. But, heads up, never store your smoothies with the blade assembly attached—active ingredients in some foods may lead to pressure buildup and possible injury. Store them with Sip & Seal Lids instead.
