Sweet Cashew Creme

A luxurious addition to fruit or desserts

Hannah Kaminsky

(Need cream for a savory recipe? Try unsweetened cashew creme.)

Serves 6

1 1/2 cups whole, raw cashews (or 1 cup cashew butter)
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

If using whole cashews, begin by grinding them down in your food processor. It may take 5 to 10 minutes for the cashews to begin releasing their natural oils and turn into a smooth paste, but don't stop short, as it is important that there are no lumps.

Add your freshly processed cashew butter (or a store-bought version, available in many natural food stores) to your blender or food processor along with the water, maple syrup, and vanilla. Process to combine.

Recipe from "My Sweet Vegan" by Hannah Kaminsky.
