    1/2 cup (125 mL) cashew butter
    2/3 cup (160 mL) vanilla soy yogourt or to taste
    2 to 3 tbsp (30 to 45 mL) unsweetened applesauce
    2 tsp (10 mL) agave nectar
    1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) sea salt
    Heaping 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) cinnamon

    in a blender or mini food processor, combine all ingredients and purée until very smooth. you can also mix by hand, whisking until very smooth, but using a processor is much faster and easier. this dip will thicken after refrigeration, so feel free to add more soy yogourt for a thinner dip or sauce. Makes 3 to 4 wheat-free servings.
