Sweet Cashew Spread

With its slight hint of cinnamon, we know you’ll be sweet on this versatile cashew spread.

Whatever your morning routine consists of—bagels, bananas, or blended beverages—you’ll want to start including this slightly sweet and incredibly adaptable spread in your plans. Everybody likes getting a two-for-one, but the combination of agave nectar, salt, and cashew butter is more of a triple-threat. The richness of cashews makes a perfect base for both sides of this flavor combination. Slather a hearty helping on your cinnamon-raisin bagel, dollop a heaping spoonful on your oatmeal, or thicken your strawberry-spinach smoothie by dropping some into your blender with a little non-dairy milk for some serious rise-and-shine satisfaction. This versatile and creamy treat is a great evening addition too. Take the sweet spread out for a tapas dinner by spreading some on toasted crostini and top with VegNews Recipe Club's Plum Basil Jam. With so many options available, a double-batch may be in order.

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
