This deceptively easy and deliciously rich, dairy-free alternative to cream, which can be as saucy or stiff as desired. A blender or food processor is essential.
Use in a parfait with layers of berries, (defrosted or fresh); or on fruit, on top of granola or muesli or as a bagel shmear.
- 4 ounces raw cashews
- 1/2-2/3 cup water, as needed
- small dash maple syrup or a few dates
- Drop cashes and sweetener in blender
- Pour boiling water over them until partially immersed. The more water, the less stiff and more saucy – any consistency is good. Let sit 20 minutes
- Blend until creamy
