You may be wondering what xanthan gum is and why we use it. Well, xanthan gum is a natural thickener derived from fermented sugars. It is often used in vegan cooking to thicken creams and sauces and give them a smooth texture.

To make our vegan lime cashew cup with xanthan gum, first follow the basic cup recipe. You soak the cashews(guide) and puree them into a creamy mass. Then add the lime juice to give the cup its characteristic flavor.
