Our Dairy-free Sour Cream recipe is soy-free and doesn’t contain any of the digestive-upsetting sugars or proteins found in it’s dairy counterpart, like lactose or casein.
As this sour cream thickens with refrigeration, it’s best to prepare it ahead of time. Enjoy 😊
1/2 cup raw cashews (preferably soaked for at least 4 hours and drained)
2 tsp fresh lemon juice (about the juice of 1 small lemon)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
filtered water (if needed – for thinning)
salt to taste
Place all ingredients into a Nutribullet or high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy, adding a little water if the mix is too thick to blend.
For the best consistency, refrigerate overnight and keep in the fridge until needed. Enjoy 😊

“Activated almonds” is a fancy term for almonds that have been soaked for at least 12 hours so that they begin early germination. This increases their nutrient content and makes the nutrients more bio-available and easier to digest.
This recipe makes a nice and creamy, unsweetened almond milk, suitable for use in hot or cold drinks and dishes 🙂
Ingredients (makes approx. 1 litre)
3/4 cup raw almonds
1 litre filtered water (plus more water for soaking)
pinch salt (optional)
Rinse the almonds well in cold water then soak them covered in clean water in the fridge for at least 12 hours (overnight is good!). Drain and rinse again with clean, cold water. Your almonds have now been “activated”! 🙂
For blending, I use a Nutribullet but if you don’t have one, you can use any blender. Place almonds and a pinch of salt in the large Nutribullet cup with 500ml of the filtered water. Blend until creamy. Strain through a nut milk bag or cheesecloth into a large jug. Put the pulp back into the Nutribullet cup and add the remaining 500ml water. Blend again then strain. Milk will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge in an airtight bottle (shake before each use as the ingredients can settle a little)
