What better way to start off a party than with a delicious appetizer, or end it with a delectable dessert? Whether the party is for an intimate dinner gathering, or a wild game night, tasty dips are always sure to impress. That’s why we love our vegan cashew cream–the bold flavors and impressive nutrition content pair beautifully with almost any food of your choice. Not only does this cream make a great party food, it also contains a healthy dose of cashews, which are a heart healthy nut. Cashews contain about 66% heart healthy monounsaturated fats, and have a lower fat content than other nuts. Studies have shown that eating foods which contain monounsaturated fats may be beneficial for blood glucose levels and insulin responses, which is important for those with diabetes (1). Along with blood glucose improvements, monounsaturated fats have been shown to help reduce triglyceride levels, as high triglyceride levels are associated with an increase for heart disease (2). So, the next time you want to use a fun dip with a meal, try out our cashew cream! The delicious flavors and amazing nutrition benefits are sure to leave you and your loved ones smiling for hours.
