Cashew Nut Butter Recipe

This is my favourite healthy spread. It's perfect for anyone who cannot eat dairy products (like me).

This is an eczema-friendly version of Cashew Nut Butter, which is also free of gluten, egg, salicylates and amines (if using raw cashews, not roasted).

I have added fine calcium powder for acid-alkaline balance (nuts are acidic and some types of calcium are highly alkaline).

If you are sensitive to nuts... see my Sesame-free hummus recipe as it is nut-free. 


  • 1 cup raw cashews (soaked, drained, rinsed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine quality sea salt (or to taste)
  • 2 scoops fine calcium powder Skin Friend PM (optional, see notes)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons rice bran oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons flax seed oil
  • 3 tablespoons filtered water 


  1. Soak raw cashews in enough water to cover overnight (or you can soak them for 4 hours). Drain and rinse. 

  2. Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add extra water if necessary. 

Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for about a week.

    Notes: you can make this dairy free spread calcium enriched (and acid alkaline based) by adding calcium carbonate powder.
