Cashew cream

Cashew Cream

One of the easiest and yummiest recipes I learn whilst in Costa Rica was cashew cream. I have used it for so many things since coming back. Yoghurt, being the main one and also as the ‘cheese’ for cheese cake.

Cashew cream

  • Simply submerge the cashew nuts in a bowl of cold water to cover them fully.
  • Leave to soak overnight.
  • Use fresh filtered water and blend the nuts in a nutri-bullet or high speed blender
  • Add a tablespoon of maple syrup
  • Add lemon, lime, fresh berries, vanilla essence or any flavour you like to the mix. Or leave plain.

Voila! This can be used on top of porridge as a yoghurt substitute, on top of deserts like healthy chocolate brownies or in savoury recipes like cauliflower mash.
