What You Need:

For the sour cream:
3/4 cup vegan creamer
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 cup macadamia nuts
3/4 cup raw cashews
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons white miso
2 teaspoons brown rice syrup
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

For the dip:

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons dried minced onion
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons brown rice syrup
2 carrots, cut into sticks, for serving

What You Do:

In a high-powered blender or food processor, add creamer mixture, macadamias, cashews, garlic powder, salt, miso, and brown rice syrup and blend until smooth.
