Author Notes: Although there are plenty of store-bought vegan alternatives for products like sour cream, they are rarely satisfying. With just a few minutes of effort, you have a gorgeous cream that is indistinguishable for the common dairy-based variety. My dairy queen roommate even proclaimed in amazement, “I’m eating sour cream!” I promise you’ll never know the difference. Amanda

Makes: 1/2 cup

  • 1/4 cup cashews, soaked overnight
  • 4 tablespoons coconut cream*
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • pinches sea salt
  1. Drain the soaked cashews.
  2. Pour the cashews into a blender with coconut cream, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and salt. Blend until totally smooth.
  3. Chill until ready to use.
  4. *Note: Coconut cream occurs when the fat separates from the liquid. To get coconut cream, place a can of full fat coconut milk in the refrigerator. The cream will rise to the top and can be scraped off for this recipe.
