Trust me, I’m not using that title lightly! I’ve just made something quite amazing from a ridiculously small number of ingredients leaving me in a state of shock!
So this week I’ve been researching the benefits of soaking nuts and grains etc to remove toxins and make proteins and other good nutrients more easily absorbable by the body.
During the research I came across quite a few posts about ‘cream’ substitutes – especially when looking at vegan sites.
I tried to make Cashew Cream today and I’ve pretty much polished it off standing in the kitchen cooking dinner!
It’s super smooth as a result of soaking the cashews and the maple syrup is a great partner in crime. I’m going to have this as ‘Strawberries and cream’, it could easily be a ‘buttercream’ on top of GF cupcakes and might even work with my morning granola/compote concoction.
If you make anything from my blog, please make this.
- 1 cup plain cashews
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- Small pinch of sea salt
Soak the nuts covered in boiled water for 15 minutes.
Drain and add to a blender with all other ingredients and blitz for 3-4 minutes.
Add more water and blitz again if you want a thinner ‘cream’.
Done. Taste it. Smile at your genius. Eat.
