I call them the SUPER TRIO and they are, from left: Nut BUTTER (cashew or almond), AVOCADO SPREAD (plain smashed avocado with some sea salt) and, the king of them all, TAHINI (crushed sesame seeds PASTE mixed with water, lemon juice and garlic).

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 cup raw cashews or raw blanched almonds

INSTRUCTIONS

1 Soak the nuts for 2 hours in a bowl of potable warm water. Combine the nuts and 1/2 cup of warm water in the blender.

2 Slowly add remaining water until creamy. (If you like a thinner liquid, add more warm water.) Pass it through cheesecloth and you will have super white, delicious milk.

3 With that which remains in the cloth, make nut butter. It’s very useful in cakes or cookies instead of dairy butter, for breakfast as a spread on bread or toast instead of butter, cheese or even yogurt.

4 Options: You can add a little bit of honey and sea salt, if you like.
