Organic Raw Cashew Pieces
Country of Origin:
Our organic raw cashew pieces are an excellent vegan source of copper, providing more of the mineral than most other non-meat sources. In fact, eating a quarter-cup of cashews every day gives you 98% of your recommended daily intake of copper, which may decrease your risk of chronic disease.
Did you think that going vegan means you have to give up all your favorite creamy foods and desserts? Think again. The rich fat content of cashews (mostly heart-healthy fats!) makes them a perfect substitute for heavy cream. To witness this almost magical transformation for yourself, soak a cup of raw cashews in 1/2 cup water overnight; then, blend the mixture in a food processor until completely smooth, adding additional chilled water to reach the desired consistency. You'll be astonished as to how rich and creamy the result is, and it's nearly indistinguishable from dairy cream, but with a fraction of the fat and calories.
