  • 16 Ounces of Raw Unsalted Cashews or Cashew Pieces (Organic Ones Cost More as You May or May Not Know)

  • Nutty?        Slower Speed
  • Crunchy?   Slower Speed
  • Smooth?    Like the Video
  • With the Manuka Honey?
  • With the Pink Salt?
  • Organic Chocolate?…Yum, I will have to try that one
  • Half Walnuts Half Raw Cashews?
 
It does  get stored in the fridge gang, store it in a nice air tight glass type jar or container and If you are concerned about your sodium intake, it’s important to select unsalted cashew butter instead of salted. While unsalted cashew butter is practically sodium free, a single tablespoon of salted cashew butter contains 26 percent of the DV of sodium. Because of the amount of calories and fat cashew butter contains, it’s important to eat it in moderation. A thin coating on breads or bagels adds protein to a meal without contributing significantly to calories or fat. You can also use cashew butter to thicken and flavor fruit shakes, soups and sauces.

Natives in South America used cashew shell oil in the treatment of scurvy, sores, warts, ringworm, and psoriasis. The oil is found to have potent antibacterial properties. Not many plants can claim to provide so many benefits. Cashews provide essential fatty acids, B vitamins, fiber, protein, potassium, iron, and zinc. They are also lower in total fat than almonds, peanuts, pecans, and walnuts. –

Healthy Fats

Seventy-five percent of the fat in cashew butter is oleic acid, the type of heart-healthy unsaturated fat found in olive oil. Substituting unsaturated fats for saturated fats found in animal products and tropical oils can help improve your cholesterol levels, notes the American Heart Association.

Uses

Cashew butter is usually sold raw, and requires refrigeration after opening to prevent it becoming rancid. Cashew butter does not usually contain added sugar, making it a healthy alternative to sweetened peanut butters. Use it in lieu of peanut butter for cookies or peanut sauces. Add cashew butter to a smoothie made with frozen bananas and soy milk to make a mock ice cream
