    I’m fairly new to a vegan lifestyle. I’ve read recipes on using raw cashews to make cashew cream but haven’t tried making it yet. Do you use raw cashews in your recipe. If so,where do you you purchase them. Thanks for your help!

      Yes, use raw cashews. I buy mine at Trader Joe’s, but if you don’t have a TJs close by you can usually find them in the bulk bin at grocery stores. Buy the ones in pieces, they are cheaper than whole nuts. As a last resort you can get them on Amazon.

    I have gotten them at Wal-Mart.

    Any recommendations if you cannot use cashews?
