  • *1 cup Cashews soaked or boiled
  • ½ cup Purified water
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar raw, unfiltered
  • tsp Mustard powder or dijon mustard
  • **1 tsp Granulated garlic or ½-1 clove of fresh garlic
  • 1 tsp Salt unrefined
  • ***1¼ cup Oil

Optional (flavour combos)

  • ⅛ to ¼ cup Pesto reduce the oil from above
  • cup Sriracha or another hot sauce
  • ¼ cup Truffle oil reduce the oil from above


  • Soak or boil your cashews.
  • Add everything except the oil to the blender. Blend on high until smooth (45-60 seconds). Scrape the sides of the blender with a spatula.
  • Blend on low and slowly add the oil over approx. 30 seconds.
  • Pour into a jar and refrigerate. It should last up to two weeks in the fridge.


*The Cashews:
  1. You can soak raw, unseasoned cashews in room temp water for 4 hours (this will keep your may raw and packed with EXTRA enzymes).
  2. You can boil the cashews for 15-mins. A great option if you’re short on time.
**The Garlic:
I like granulated garlic. I prefer it to garlic powder in most recipes, because it’s a little less… potent. 
In this recipe, getting the right ratio of fresh garlic can be tricky. Raw garlic gets more potent by the day, so I suggest starting with ½ a clove. Alternatively, you could use roasted garlic for a lovely roasted garlic mayo.
***The Oil
I use half avocado and half olive oil. The olive oil has a pretty strong flavour and I prefer a less intense taste in this recipe. Grapeseed is another good option, though keep in mind it’s got a higher Omega-6 ratio than avocado oil.
** If you do a pesto or truffle mayo, be sure to include that in the total oil used.
