Funny enough, as the universe would have it, I ended up actually having strawberries and cream last night (check out my Strawberries-and-Greens Smoothie from yesterday). Cashew cream, that is. Eff Cool Whip, this cream is worlds better. The healthy fats from cashews and coconut milk will fill you right up, and perfectly compliments fresh fruit. We drizzled ours with melted chocolate too.
Coconut Cashew Cream
1 cup cashews, soaked in water for at least two hours
1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
2 tbsp water
1/2 tsp vanilla
1-2 tbsp maple syrup, honey, brown rice syrup, or clear raw agave
Pinch of sea salt
- Place soaked cashews in food processor or high-powered blender with coconut milk. Blend until smooth, adding water as needed.
- Add in vanilla, sweetener, and salt to taste.
Use as a topping on fruit, pancakes, waffles, or to thicken smoothies and pudding… or be creative and use it anywhere you want
