  2. Pour into a bowl and serve with your favourite chips. 


*For best results, soak the cashews in warm water for an hour then drain. This will help soften the cashews and blend up more easily. If you have a powerful blender, you can technically skip this step. 

Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
