      you can make it yourself 1 cup raw cashews soaked for 2 hours (soaking is optional)

      1/4 -1/2 cup filtered water depending on desired thickness

      2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice or a little more to taste

      1 Tbsp raw agave nectar

      1 Tbsp lemon zest and extra for garnishing

      pinch of Celtic sea salt

      you can omit the lemon for a basic recipe but if you like lemon leave it in.
