Cashews are so buttery and delicious-I love to eat them any chance I can get!
This recipe serves as a vegan substitute for recipes that call for cream. You can also use it in cakes, pies, mousse or with fresh fruit. You may also choose to omit the honey ,OJ and spices and use the plain cashew cream in place of cheese on burgers, nachos, salads, sandwiches or any other dish that needs an extra kick (just follow step one/two).
1 cup raw cashews
1.5 TBSP orange juice
1.5 TBSP honey or agave
cinnamon/nutmeg to taste
1. Soak cashews in a bowl of water overnight- make sure the water completely covers the cashews.
2. Day 2, drain water and process with food processor till creamy.
3. Add remaining ingredients. Blend with a food processor till creamy. YUMMMY!!!
