This savory garlic and herb dip is made with dairy-free homemade cream cheese. The end result is a super creamy, rich, and easy to make dip that’s perfect for all occasions. 


For the Homemade Cream Cheese:

  • 2 cups raw cashews, soaked overnight
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ½ tsp apple cider vinegar
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the Dip: 

  • ¼ cup avocado oil mayo (I use Primal Kitchen Mayo)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh chives
  • 1 ½ tsp dill
  • ¾ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

For serving:

  • Freshly chopped vegetables such as red pepper, carrots, or celery
  • Simple Mills crackers



  1. Place the cashews in a bowl and cover with filtered water. Soak for 12 hours (or overnight). Drain the cashews and rinse well.
  2. Place the cashews in a blender or food processor with the remaining ingredients for the homemade cream cheese. Pulse for 3-4 minutes until the mixture is creamy. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides if necessary. 
  3. In a medium sized bowl, fold the homemade cream cheese and mayo together. 
  4. Once smooth, add the remaining ingredients for the dip and mix until evenly combined. 
  5. Chill the dip for at least one hour before serving. Serve with freshly chopped veggies or crackers.
