I’ve been seeing a variety of cashew creams all over Pinterest and wanted to give it a try.
I was surprised it was easy to make and so delicious. I dipped fresh strawberries in it for a sweet afternoon treat. I bet it would be great on toast or drizzled in oatmeal.
1 cup raw unsalted cashews
1/2 cup filtered water
2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
In a bowl, soak the cashews for 15-30 minutes in filtered water until soft. Drain and place in a blender. Add in 1/2 cup of filtered water and the rest of the ingredients.
Blend for 30-60 seconds until smooth and creamy. Adjust water, sweetener, vanilla or salt if needed.
Transfer to an air tight container and chill for a few hours. The spread will thicken as it chills.
