Vegan Tip of the Week -- How to replace sour cream

1) Buy it in the store- Tofutti is the brand I see most often

2) Make your own with coconut milk -

*15 oz can full-fat coconut milk

*1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice

*1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Put the unopened can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Open the can and remove the creamy coconut on top (you can use the water for smoothies).

Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl and serve as usual.

3) Make your own sour cream with raw cashews -

*1 cup raw cashews, soaked for 4 hours

*1/2 to 1 cup water (Start with 1/2 cup -- add more water if necessary to make it smooth)

*2 tsp fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar

*1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
