Tangy, sweet, creamy and full of citrusy zest, this is a healthy raw vegan version of traditional English lemon curd by Sarah McMinn of The Sweet Life! The options are endless with this recipe! Use as a filling for tarts or crepes topped with fresh berries, as a topping for waffles, or serve a dollop or two along with a fruit salad for breakfast.


  • 1/3 cup cashews, soaked 4-6 hours
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp water
  • zest of one large lemon
  • 3-4 tbsp raw agave nectar, to taste
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of turmeric, for color (optional)


1. Drain and rinse cashews. Place in a food processor or Vitamix blender. Add coconut butter, lemon juice, and water. Blend until completely smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend until well combined.
