- Soak chia seeds in hot water for approx. 30 minutes, until seeds have expanded.
- Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender.
- Start on low, then increase to high. Blend until smooth and creamy, approx. 1-2 minutes.
- Place into a tight-fitting jar and store in the refrigerator.
Make sure to use a high quality white balsamic vinegar. It makes a huge difference.
If you don’t have a high-speed blender, you may need to soak cashews in water, to soften. You also may need to mince garlic.
