I’m Sour on Cream…

Savoury, not sweet

Savoury, not sweet

After my amazing holiday over Christmas,  have been a little lax in getting back on the dairy-free wagon. I indulged over the break and was pleasantly surprised to have no immediate digestive repercussions!

Read immediate! Hmmm, it is now halfway through February and I have continued to enjoy a bit of dairy here & there but now I’m facing the consequences of my actions!


A bit of bloating, skin break outs, lethargy……(blow raspberry here)…

My recent food allergy test confirmed that yes, I still have a strong intolerance to dairy – or particularly that of, Aussie cows versus Japanese cows! Boo Hoo, the milk and cream was so good in Hokkaido!

So here is a pretend version of sour cream. Based on cashews, it will get me past the line convincingly. Well, almost!!


100g pinenuts

300g cashews, soaked for at least 3 hours

1 clove garlic

1 rounded teas salt

200g coconut cream

50g water

Juice of 2 lemons

60g apple cider vinegar

1 probiotic capsule (optional)

Rinse the cashews and blend with the remaining ingredients on SP 9 for 1 minute. Taste and scrape down and blend for another 30 seconds until smooth. Stir in the probiotic at the end.

Cream will thicken on standing.

      Hi Jodie
      It will last about 5 days in a sealed jar.

    I am constantly amazed by your cleverness Sarah. Who’d have thought there could be such a nutritious and tasty alternative to dairy sour cream.👍👍👍
