Cashews Me!

My go-to nut butter was always almond, until I found out cashew butter was a thing. Oh my gosh, it is so creamy and has such a rich, sweet flavor!

Cashews are nutrient dense and full of heart healthy benefits. They contain several minerals & vitamins including iron, magnesium, vitamin B6 & calcium. They are filled with healthy fats & promote strong bones, a healthy heart and great for hair & skin support— love that for us!

You can make your own cashew butter at home, all you need are roasted cashews & a food processor.

I most commonly use cashew butter as a topping for my smoothie bowls, but it can also be used as a dip for apples or celery. Another option is spreading it on toast topped with some fresh berries, drizzled with honey.
