Add it to pasta, spread it on toast with avo, add to roast veggies. The options are endless.


1 cup macadamia nuts or cashews or almonds 

2-3 cups fresh basil, stems removed ( you really can use any herb) 

1 garlic cloves

1/2 to 1 lemon zest and juice

Half an avocado 

2 tbsp of nutritional yeast or parmesan 

1/8 cup of good quality olive oil 

1 tsp salt (celtic or pink salt) 

Freshly ground pepper to taste

2 tbsp of coconut cream 


Blend all ingredients in the food processor. Blend until desired consistency (add water or coconut cream if you would like it smoother). 

If you would like really smooth pesto:

  1. Soak the cashews for 2-4 hours

  2. Drain and wash cashews, add everything to the blender
