Cashew Cream

Thermomix cashew cream recipe

I flipping love this. So simple to make and super tasty.

In a nutshell (see what I did there?) you can use it on the following:

1. As a dip for fresh fruit (great for fruit kebabs for the kids)

2. Cupcake / cake frosting (add a cheeky layer of my whipped date paste too)

3. On chia pudding with fruit for a parfait

4. Dollop on top of pancakes

5. Omit the maple syrup and vanilla and add a little more lemon and use as a ‘sour cream’ on roasted veggies or Tex Mex dishes. (Great in wraps too)

6. Add to smoothies for extra creaminess

7. A breakfast treat on top of granola or stirred through bircher muesli. (Add to CADA for a cheats Bircher)

You could also:

Add cinnamon, cacao (or cocoa) powder, shredded coconut, dates for extra sweetness, coconut sugar for a caramel flavour. You can adjust the amount of liquid to suit – you may like a more spoonable texture (great for cupcakes) just add less water – it does firm up quite a bit in the fridge, but you can blend again with more liquid if you want to loosen it.

Enjoy!
