Start by soaking the cashews in water for up to 8 hours. Drain and place in a high speed food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and blend for 1 – 2 minutes. Add a splash or two of water if the mixture looks a bit crumbly. Blend again until completely smooth and creamy.

Serve right away or keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
