This beautiful dairy-free spread is rich and delicate with flavors of macadamia, cashew, coconut, and green tea. Packed with healthy fats and antioxidants, its light green color makes for a wonderful and surprising presentation at the table. It is not necessary to soak the nuts overnight, but it does help with digestibility if you are sensitive.
