Cashew Cream

Now this recipe got me *really* excited, as I am always looking for protein rich alternatives to cream. We cannot have soya here, in common with many others on exclusion diets. Rice cream is hard to find and Oatly cream getting seems to be getting scarce too - and is not rich in protein. So when I head you could whizz up cashew nuts to make "cream"  it really got my attention!!!

The recipe is very simple:-

Ingredients

55g unsalted cashews
120ml water
For sweet cashew cream add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and 1/4 tsp maple syrup.

Method

In a food processor blend the cashews and half the water to a thick paste it takes a couple of minutes, stop the machine and scrape down the sides as necessary. Slowly add the remaining water through the funnel until smooth again a couple of mins.

To make it sweet add the vanilla and maple syrup, or agave nectar.
