This is such an easy and healthy replacement for sweets! You can use it in parfaits instead of yogurt for a vegan breakfast or I like to just eat it with fresh fruit or on top of my pancakes or waffles as a whip cream substitute.
It will be a lot easier to get the creamy texture if you soak the cashews for a couple of hours before blending but it’s not necessary. You should also have a high speed blender like a vitamix in order to get it smooth. If you don’t have a high speed blender it may remain a little chunky, but that’s Ok. It will just be like chunky peanut butter versus smooth peanut butter. It will still taste just as delicious.
TIME: 5 minutes
1 cup cashews soaked
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup orange juice
YIELDS: 1 cup
Soak your cashews for several hours.
Place drained and soaked cashews in the blender with orange juice and maple syrup and blend well. If your blender is struggling you can always add a little more orange juice!
