Raw Vegan Cashew Mayonnaise

When my daughter started loving the flavor and consistency of mayonnaise, I got creative in my kitchen with cashews and made my own, without fancy ingredients. I have read a few other recipes and tried this in the past, but never for a seven year old. My goal was to disguise the fact that it was homemade, and to my surprise, she loved it, although she knew it wasn’t the store-bought vegan mayo.  For nut allergies or SIBO nutritional needs, cashews in this recipe can easily be replaced with pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts and/or walnuts, but it will alter the flavor and texture accordingly.
