MMM cashews. One of my favorite type of nuts, as they are sweet and buttery tasting, and are great salted or even just as is. I always pick them (and pecans!) out of trail mix, and eat those first
Which brings me to cashew butter, another one of my favorites (right alongside peanut butter, of course!)
Artisana sent me a couple of there nut butters for free in cute 1 oz. jars, about 1 serving per jar. I loved them! So convenient, and pre-portioned, too! One of them I was sent to try was the 100% Organic Raw Cashew Butter. This one was made with only 100% Organic Raw Cashews and nothing else. According to thewebsite, “Artisana™ Raw Organic Cashew butter is naturally high in Essential Amino Acids, Copper, Manganese and Magnesium. It’s also a good source of Phosphorus, Vitamin K, Zinc. A fundamental food for the healthy vegan diet”
I opened up the jar and saw a pale beige colored nut butter, which sort of resembled a paste. It was thick when I stirred it, but had a very smooth consistency. The taste was excellent. Very creamy, pure and light tasting. Slightly sweet and slightly buttery, and had a very clean cashew flavor.
Overall, 4 stars. I did enjoy it, but I do like just a touch of salt when I eat nut butters. I felt as if something was a bit missing when I tried it, although it was quite enjoyable. Otherwise, I would probably eat this again. If not spread on something, than probably right from the jar!
