Chai Cashew Butter

Chai Cashew Butter

This was inspired by Sonia Lacasse and her great cook book Paleo Home Cooking. I love the chapter on nut butters and did a spin on one of them. Just remember you will need to soak your raw cashews for 10-24 hours. I hope you like it and this butter is especially delicious on my Turmeric Sweet Potato Protein Muffins.
