Raw Basil & Avocado Pesto

Creamy, full of flavour and zing and goes hand in hand with any raw dish!


2 avocado
2 lemons
1/2 cup cashew or pine nuts
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
4 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
Pepper to taste


  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender and mix until smooth.
  2. If you don’t like your pesto to zingy, start with only the juice from 1 lemon and gradually add until you are happy with the taste.

This pesto will keep fresh in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.


The pesto is great served with courgette noodles and with raw pizza (on top of raw crackers and lots of fresh vegetables)!
