Sweet Cashew Spread

We swear you’ll be sweet on this slightly sugary cashew spread.

Whether your morning routine consists of bagels, bananas, or blended beverages, you’ll want to start including this slightly sweet, semi-salty spread in your plans. Everybody likes getting two-for-one, and the combination of agave nectar, salt, and cashew butter is really more like getting a three-fer. The richness of cashews makes a perfect base for both sides of this flavor combination. Slather a hearty helping on your cinnamon-raisin bagel, dollop a heaping spoonful on your oatmeal, or toss the whole shebang into your blender with a little non-dairy milk and your choice of fruit for two servings of serious smoothie satisfaction. PB+J will never be the same after you’ve replaced your PB with this yummy stand-in, and load up with your favorite J. In case you couldn’t tell, we think this is just about the most versatile spread around, so don’t be shy!
