Raw Coconut Cream

You can place this frosting on fresh fruit, sweets, oatmeal, or can eat it alone as a sweet treat. Coconut is very good for your health and do not be discouraged by the "fat" content- coconut oil has "good fat" that revs up your metabolism, increases thyroid function, and regulated blood sugar. It also contains lauric acid, which is also found in mother's milk and is very healing- so enjoy!!!

Raw Coconut Cream
1 cup cashews
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 TBSP agave or honey
1 TSP cinnamon OR
1/2 TSP fresh vanilla

1. Blend in a mini food processor will fluffy and place in fridge to cool for about one hour.

Note: If you use soaked cashews your mixture will be extra moist. If you use un-soaked cashews your frosting will be thicker. I prefer to use un-soaked cashews and low-fat coconut milk with vanilla.
You also have the option to use coconut oil in place of the milk, which will allow your frosting to set quicker and will be much more firm in texture.
