Cashew cream is a godsend: so creamy, so easy to make, and an excellent substitute for dairy-based items like cream, full-fat milk, sour cream, Alfredo sauce, or cream cheese.

In this post, I share my classic cashew cream recipe plus four other fun flavor variations that will jazz up a variety of meals. You’ll also find tips on getting the best texture, the ideal liquid to cashew ratio, and plenty of ways to use it in everyday meals.

So many great flavors, so little time.

Ingredient Spotlight

labeled ingredients on wooden cutting board with cashews, lemons, water, nutritional yeast

Raw cashews. Cashews are, of course, required. You need raw cashews (read more why in the FAQ section), but whole cashews or cashew pieces both work fine.

Water or plant-based milk. In order to liquefy cashews, you need some liquid. Water is the most commonly used, but you could use an unsweetened plant milk for extra creaminess. 

Salt. Salt is absolutely necessary, just like it is any almost any sauce or vinaigrette. Non-negotiable. My recipes call for sea salt. If using Diamond Crystal kosher salt, use almost double the amount. 

Lemon juice. An acidic ingredient is needed to neutralize the faint taste of cashews and to brighten it up. 

The above ingredients are essential, but you can make cashew cream taste even better by adding a few extra ingredients.

Nutritional yeast. A superstar vegan ingredient that adds a nice savory, slightly cheesy flavor.

Garlic. A small amount of raw garlic brings a nice, sharp, pungent bite.

Lemon zest. When you want a zingy fresh bite, just a small amount of lemon zest will go a long way.

Additional ingredients. As you’ll see below, you can create flavor variations by adding fresh herbs, hot sauces, and spices.

The Ratio of Cashews to Liquid

The best cashew to liquid ratio depends on what you are using your cashew cream for.

In order of thickness, here is my recommended cashew to liquid ratio for 1 cup of raw cashews.

Super thick
Use for: Frosting for cakes/cupcakes/desserts (I recommend using plant milk as the liquid)
Ratio: 1 cup cashews : 1/4 cup liquid
Metric: 135g cashews : 60 mL liquid

Very thick
Use for: A vegan dip or as a filling in raw desserts/cake
Ratio: 1 cup cashews : 1/3 cup liquid
Metric: 135g cashews : 80 mL liquid

Thick
Use for: A dip; spoon over savory food; stir into soups, curries and pasta sauces
Ratio: 1 cup cashews : 1/2 cup liquid
Metric: 135g cashews : 120 mL liquid

Somewhat thick
Use for: A sauce or drizzle onto savory food; stir into soups, curries and pasta sauces
Ratio: 1 cup cashews : 3/4 cup liquid
Metric: 135g cashews : 180 mL liquid

Note: If you are using a small blender cup (e.g., 32 ounces or smaller), you can make a super thick or very thick version. But if you have a larger blender container (e.g., a 64 ounce container), it will be very difficult if not impossible to do so – you need at least 1/2 cup liquid (for 1 cup of cashews).

So if you are looking to make a really thick version but only have a large blender container, use (a) a food processor, OR (b) use your blender but make a bigger batch so you have at least 1/2 cup of liquid.

Also note that cashew cream does thicken a fair amount as it rests in the fridge.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I soak raw cashews?

The ideal method is to place your raw cashews in a bowl and just cover them with cool or cold water, and soak overnight.

But, if you don’t have the time, you can try the quick boil method: add the cashews to a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and boil for 15 minutes. 

If you have a high-powered blender and a small blender container (e.g., 32 ounces or smaller), you can also cover the cashews in boiling water for just 30 minutes.

Whichever method you choose, be sure to drain the cloudy soaking water (it can be a little bitter and weird in color) and rinse your cashews in fresh water. 

Can I use roasted cashews instead of raw cashews?

No, for two reasons. One, raw cashews are neutral in flavor, which is what we’re looking for here; pre-roasted cashews have a toasty flavor that you will taste. Second, when raw cashews are soaked, they plump up, which makes them powerful thickeners. Roasted cashews do not behave the same way. 

What kind of blender do I need to make?

A high-powered blender works best.

While you can make cashew cream in a food processor, it won’t get as smooth as it does in a high-powered blender, like a Vitamix, Blendtec, Ninja, etc. It will also take longer to blend (about 4-5 minutes instead of 2 minutes). 

A standard blender would be your last resort, and it’ll never be perfect—you’ll have little cashew bits in your cream. If you are using this, I’d recommend soaking your cashews overnight, rinsing them, and soaking them again in fresh water. A long soak is really necessary for blenders without a powerful blade. 

Typically, refurbished blenders are sold at a significant discount, like this Vitamix.

How do you store cashew cream? Can you freeze it?

Store cashew cream in a glass jar in the fridge for one week (occasionally, it lasts a little longer!).

Yes, you can freeze cashew cream! Pour it into a freezer-safe container and store for 4 to 6 months. Defrost in the fridge until thawed (smaller containers defrost quicker).

The texture gets a little chunky but the taste is still great. Stir well before using, or to get it totally smooth again, give it a quick blend.

five flavor variations of cashew cream on spoons sitting on brown plate

How to use cashew cream

The beauty of cashew cream is that it’s so versatile, especially when you have so many flavor variations to choose from. Below is a roundup of fun and easy ways to incorporate cashew cream into your meals.

Drizzle over roasted veggies. Roasted winter squash is particularly good with the Rosemary-Miso Cashew Cream. Broccoli is particularly good with the Ginger-Sriracha version.

Make a creamy pasta sauce. A great alternative to dairy-based creamy pasta sauces. Add your favorite spices and herbs and get creative, like in this Spicy Turmeric Cashew Cream Pasta.

An alternative to sour cream. To get that characteristic sour cream tang, add a bit of apple cider vinegar to your cashew cream recipe. You can find my cashew sour cream recipe in my Crunchwrap Supreme blog post.

Spoon over grain bowls or proteins. Serve burrito bowls with the Cilantro-Lime Cashew Cream

Drizzle the Ginger-Sriracha Cashew Cream over baked or fried tofu and rice bowls.

Stir into mashed potatoes, soups, or pastas for added indulgence. If you love my Lentil Bolognese recipe, it’s even better with cashew cream stirred into it. If you have my cookbook The Vegan Instant Pot Cookbook, cashew cream is SO good stirred into the Pumpkin Farrotto.

Dips or spreads. Serve the Cilantro-Lime version as a dip or sauce for quesadillas, spoon into burritos, or dollop onto tacos.

In casseroles. Replace dairy-based cream sauces with cashew cream in gratins and casseroles, like this Creamy Lentil Winter Bake.

With oatmeal or porridge. Stir a sweet cashew cream, such as the Cinnamon-Vanilla version, into cooked oatmeal or porridge for a breakfast treat

An alternative to mayo. Use cashew cream as a sandwich spread or lather it onto wraps, like the below wrap filled with smashed chickpeas, roasted sweet potatoes, kale, and cashew cream.

In desserts. Use a sweet cashew cream, such as the Cinnamon-Vanilla version, as a filling for raw cakes and tarts, or make this Fig Tart with Coconut-Cashew Cream. Or, stuff into dates for a healthy and quick treat.

    So good. We had the sriracha version over a backed potato and roasted vegetables and it was perfect. Creamy and spicy at the same time and a great complement to almost any meal. Thanks so much for a wonderful vegan sauce.

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Sounds like an amazing combo, Carolyn! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!

    I’m obsessed with these sauces. I made the ginger sriracha for my bowls. I’m making the cilantro lime one tonight for tacos. I can’t wait to try them all! Thank you!! Sauces for me are a must for vegan foods.

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Hi SB, we’re thrilled to hear it! I am a huge fan of these sauces as well :)

    Where had this been all my adult life? I’ve seen recipes for cashew cream before and never tried them. It just seemed like a lot of work for little payoff. I am getting more and more serious about my diet and so went out on a limb and tried two of these — the classic cream and the ginger sriracha. I LICKED THE SPOONS! I could drink this stuff. Not even joking. Thank you!

  5. Deb Z

    HELLO! What does that mean serving size-16? A cup? Half cup?
    Confusing. Thanks!

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Hi Deb, we haven’t measured out exactly the volume of the cashew cream, but by adding up the ingredients it’s anywhere from 1.75-2 cups.

    I just made this cashew cream today. It’s so good! I put on my quinoa black bean wrap today. I can’t wait to try it on pasta.

    Oh my goodness, well I have made cashew cream for the first time ever and I am like, where have you been all my life? I made the cilantro version which was delicious. I used lemon instead of lime as I tend to find fresh lime too bitter for my palate. I boiled the cashews for 15 minutes and it came out luscious, thick and creamy. I’m not even sure what I am going to do with this but I may try putting it on a black bean quesadilla! I used two jalapenos but really didn’t get any kick with them so I will add a green chilli next time as well. Thank you. I do have a question. It was quite thick when and beautiful (just perfect) out of the blender. Noting that it will thicken in the fridge, if it thickens too much, what would you suggest is the best way to thin it out? Leaving it at room temp, adding water, lemon juice etc.

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Hi Toria, thank you so much for the awesome review!

      And as for your question about thinning it out, you can just add it back to the blender with a bit more water! That would be the best way to thin it out.

      Cheers!

    Thank you so much Nisha! I LOVE finding recipes that inspire me to cook. I’m a recent subscriber so I’m just discovering your Cashew Cream. I had all the ingredients and it’s now sitting in a jar in my fridge. Delicious! It will be a staple in my fridge to use on soooo many things. Love your flavour ideas and the recipes you use it with, and I’ll also be adding more lemon/lemon zest for pasta limone and tarragon for mushroom dishes, and horseradish for….well I’m not sure yet but it will be good :-).
    I’m not entirely vegan/vegetarian so I’ll be using it for fish for sure (maybe that’s where the horseradish belongs!).
    Sending love from Canada!

    I gave this a (super belated) try for the first time – the original cashew cream recipe -and it was so good, I feel like I’ve wasted years of my life not eating it until now. Nisha you are a cashew champion! Definitely a new staple! And can’t wait to try the other varieties/flavours.

    Just made the classic and the cinnamon vanilla in my brand new vitamix.

    I use the classic with my lunch grain bowls and tofu and on potatoes!

    We just dipped frozen dates in the sweet cashew cream and it had a pumpkin-y flavor. There will always be a cashew cream in my fridge!

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Hi Lucinda, thanks for the lovely compliment! We’re delighted to hear you enjoy the cashew cream.

    Can this cashew sauce be frozen in smaller batches for later use? I’ve only tried it in the roasted red pepper spaghetti recipe. It saved me from a lot of heartburn.

    1. Nisha

      Yes, it can be frozen with pretty good results. Defrost in the fridge, and then for the best results, re-blend it to help it come back to its original texture, adding a splash of water as needed (or lemon juice to perk it up).

  12. Lucy

    What substitute can I use for the nutritional yeast? My son-in-law cannot have nutritional yeast. I will be making a batch for the rest of us with the yeast. These all look wonderful.

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Hi Lucy, for the basic cashew cream, you can just omit it or add 1 to 3 teaspoons of white or mellow miso paste as a substitute for the savory flavor (start with 1 tsp, then add more as desired). You could even try soy sauce or tamari, but again start with just a teaspoon and adjust accordingly, as you don’t want to overwhelm the flavors.

    I soooooooooooo wish i had found this recipe years ago. It is by far the BEST sauce i have ever added to my salad, tacos, burger, carrots or i catch myself just eating it right out of the jar from the fridge. :)

    Your Classic Cashew Cream recipe has a few more ingredients than other sites but allows me to easily make sample amounts to test for my favorite options.
    The four flavor variations give me great options for trying the different uses of cashew cream.
    On top of this you allow me to print off the recipes without signing my pocketbook away or getting on a mailing list that further fouls my Inbox!
    THANK YOU so much!! In return I have decided to subscribe to your Rainbow Plant Life after all.
    with much appreciation, Ann Lev

    The Rosemary Miso cashew cream was next level flavor, texture and sophistication!! I used it to stuff Squash blossoms which I roasted on a lightly oiled sheet pan and brushed the topside of the stuffed blossoms with olive oil as well.
    The results were beyond my expectations!! Very very special recipe!! Better than any cheese stuffed blossom I have ever tasted!

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Wow, Regina! I love that idea of using the cashew cream for stuffed squash blossoms- thank you so much for sharing :)
