  • ½ cup raw cashews* or shelled hemp seeds
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons filtered water
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons finely diced chipotle pepper in adobo sauce or more, to taste (I recommend 2 tbsp)
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and peeled
  • 1 ½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt or to taste


  • Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender, and blend on high until emulsified. Alternatively, combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and whisk vigorously until emulsified.


*If you're not using a high-speed blender, soak the cashews in boiling water for 10 minutes to soften before blending.
