Raspberry Orange Cashew Creme
SOAK cashews in 2 cups water ideally 2+hrs, 15mins in hot water will work. In a pinch you can make without soaking the texture may vary,
RINSE and drain soaked cashews.
BLENDER add all ingredients starting with ¼ cup water * and blend until you get a very smooth light creamy texture, then add more water if it is thicker than you would like.
TASTE if you need sweetness, add 1 tbsp raw honey or your choice sweetener. Blend, taste, adjust.
STORE in a glass container with a lid in the fridge for up to 4 days.
*ADD MORE Tangy flavours – you can use lemon or lime, grapefruit juice etc. instead of water, start with ¼ cup and taste.
** SWEETENER VEGAN use maple not honey. Only add sweetener if you really need that extra sweet taste.
DIFFERENT BERRIES Substitute raspberries for fruits like; strawberries, blueberries, cherries, mango, apricots, nectarines, peaches. The texture and consistency will vary, and you may need to adjust the amount of water accordingly adding a few tablespoons at a time.
POPPED QUINOA is what I have used in the picture to top this decadent dessert. You can make your own puffed quinoa using a very similar method for making popcorn, or you can buy it online.
USE LIKE YOGHURT; this is a wonderful yoghurt substitute, use as you would yoghurt, I have used cashew milk kefir instead of water to blend it. You can stir in a probiotic powder if you like. It keeps for least 4 days tho honestly its never been in my fridge longer than that; I eat it, it is delectable! A feel-good food that is so much better for you and the environment than store-bought plant-based yoghurt in plastic tubs.
FAIR-TRADE is important when buying cashews, along with many other imported goods.
