I adore this Garlic Lime Cashew Sour Cream. I promise, you won’t miss the dairy in this healthier alternative to sour cream. Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free & Vegan.
I am all about the sauces.
Give me something rich and creamy and I am a happy girl.
Sour Cream? Mayo?
Yep, I love them both. (Especially homemade mayo.)
What is not to love?!
Since I tend to overdo it, though, I’m always on the lookout for healthier alternatives.
You’ve seen me use Greek Yogurt a lot, which I adore. However, sometimes I want something a little richer, and that is when I look towards Cashew Cream.
Today’s Garlic Lime Cashew Cream is rich and creamy and won’t leave you feeling like you missed a thing. I love it as a dip for sweet potato fries, as a mayo substitute in wraps or in place of sour cream in tacos.
