1 cup roasted and salted cashews* (soak for at least 1 hour)**
1/4 cup water
2 medjool dates, pits removed
*If you prefer you can use raw cashews. Just add a pinch of salt to the recipe.
**In a bowl, add 1 cup cashews and one cup water. Make sure all cashews are submerged. Drain soaking water before adding nuts to your food processor.
Add soaked cashews, water and dates to a food processor and blend. You may have to scrape down the sides a few times. That's all it takes to make this simple cashew "cream cheese". Use it as a topping on toast, pancakes, or fruit.
