I made up this cashew cream to accompany a cheesecake that I made up a few days ago (which is happily stashed away in the freezer)…
Upon whizzing this ultra creamy cream up in the vitamix… I am thinking that it is very much like that delicious chocolate custard I used to eat as a kid… tastes similar and has that same smooth consistency… but guess what? It is soo much better… this has no dairy, is not processed, no added colours or flavours and is 100% natural and wow so yummy… only thing left to wonder is whether there will be any left tomorrow to serve up with the chocolate mocha cheesecake…
Here’s the recipe… (and yes you can make it with any blender / processor but it just may not be quite as smooth)
1 cup raw cashews (soaked 2 hours)
1/4 – 1/2 cup filtered water (start with a little and add to get the consistency you’d like)
2 Tsp. cacao powder
1 Tbsp. agave nectar (or maple syrup is fine too)
1/2 Tsp. vanilla powder
pinch of celtic sea salt
Blend all the ingredients together – start off with only 1/4 cup water and add to get the right consistency.
I stopped the vitamix 2 -3 times to scrap down the sides – then whizzed it all up again 🙂
Delicious – eat on it’s own or serve with any of your favourite desserts.
Eat Well. Be Well.
