Raw horseradish spread

We have found this horseradish spread, which everyone loves in the family and it kinda became our obsession to buy it every time we get the chance. The spread is the one in the picture below. Do you know it? Have you tried it out? ;)
One day we didn't have the spread at home and the obsession kicked in... So I decided to make my own version using some of the ingredients listed in the back of the original spread. The result was pretty similar to the store bought one, not exactly the same... BUT everyone was happy from the lovely spread I mixed up :) 
This spread is super easy to make and all you will need is a food processor. This portion gives two glasses (size as in the picture below) full of spread. 

What will you need: 
- approximately 100 grams of sunflower seeds, soaked for a couple of hours in filtered water
- 3 tsp of horseradish- from a can, which is not as strong as using the fresh one
- 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice 
- 1/2 tsp coconut sugar (or raw brown sugar) 
- salt and pepper
- water as needed (approximately 3 tbsp)

I couldn't find fresh horseradish in the market, so I used a canned one. You can use a fresh horseradish as well. When doing so, make sure to use the amount accordingly, as it is much stronger than the canned version. Place all ingredients, excluding the water, in food processor and process until a creamy paste is formed. Add water gradually as needed. Pour into glasses with a sealed top and store in the fridge. 
Serve as a spread on bread, as a dip for veggies, or use it into a salad dressing. 

Enjoy :)
