This Raw Creamy Basil Sauce will help!! It is totally vegan, raw which means it’s live!!
Every time I make a dish like this I can’t believe how filling, yet satisfying it is and it’s still healthy and raw – how cool is that??

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup Cashews
  • juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • pinch Himalayan Sea Salt
  • fresh ground Pepper (optional)
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2-1 cups Water
  1. Throw all ingredients in Vita mix or Blender with about 1/4 cup water, slowly adding more water until the desire consistency you prefer is met (more water will create a thinner sauce, less water it will be thicker)
  2. Finely chop 2- 4 basil leaves and stir into the mixture or add in and pulse lightly once or twice.
  3. If everything comes right out of the fridge it will be colder, you can leave things out for a little bit to get more of a room temp.
  4. Please feel free to share this recipe – it’s always greatly appreciated!!

If basil is in the name, and basil is in the instructions, why is basil not in the ingredients list?
