My Favorite Paleo Recipes:
Cashew Butter

Cashew ButterKids love peanut butter, but peanuts are legumes, and they have their problems. So, I prefer nut/seed butters like almond butter or cashew butter.


It’s easy for me to find organic almond butter (that meets my standards) online and in my healthier grocery stores. But, I have not been able to find organic cashew butter that is smooth and creamy without unhealthy, over-processed seed oils mixed into the butter. So, I tried to make my own with great success. I only use three ingredients: raw organic cashews, organic avocado oil, and Himalayan sea salt. Try it; you may love it; your kids may love it.


In the photo above, I spread it on slices of radish and sticks of celery. Create your own way to serve it.



  • 2 Cups organic raw cashews (use more cashews if you want it thicker)
  • 1/2 Cup organic avocado oil
  • 1/4 Tsp Himalayan sea salt



  1. Place all ingredients into power blender like the Vitamix® or the NutriBullet Rx®
  2. Blend until smooth
  3. Enjoy

  1. Does one need to soak the raw cashews overnight before blending?

    • Mark Sisson suggests you could soak cashews for only 2-4 hours, but it probably is not necessary.

  2. Way to go Alvin! Finally, there is a logical discourse on Oral Health connected to Whole Body Health. Good morning!
