Tip

1. 

I soak and dehydrate my raw almonds beforehand, to neutralize the enzyme inhibitors (which are naturally present to prevent them from sprouting prematurely), which otherwise inhibits absorption of nutrients.   Raw almonds can be used without soaking & dehydrating first though.

2. 

Soaking the cashew nuts beforehand is for the same reason, and also helps the cashews become creamier and smoother when blended. If soaking nuts, discard soak water when finished and rinse nuts before using.

3. 

Lecithin is used as an emulsifier (to help hold the cake together).   It can be found in health food shops….try to get organic, non-genetically modified.
