Cashew nut cream is a great clean and dairy free alternative to yogurt and cream. Is very rich so use sparingly on top of berries or as a dip. You can play around with the consistency making it as thick or as runny as you like depending on how you want to use it. If you are using it as a dip you may want to add more water. This recipe is vegetarian and vegan and can be used on a detox diet.
This Cashew nut cream is an excellent alternative to dairy and is absolutely delicious with fruits such as mango or berries. Many recipes contain maple syrup for sweetness but I really dint think it needs it. From a consistency point of view it can be quite runny or thicker depending on the amount of water you use in the recipe, so you can experiment with that.
Ingredients (choose organic where possible)
1 Cup of raw cashews
1/4-1/2 cup of filtered water depending on desired thickness
1/2 tsp natural vanilla extract
- Soak the cashew nuts in the water for at least 2 hours.
- Drain the cashews but save the water. Place the cashews in a Nutri bullet with the vanilla extract.
- Add half of the water and whizz up in the Nutri bullet. Check for consistency and add more water if you wish.
