Vegan Cashew “Cream”

Procedure

Gather ingredients. 

Cover the cashews with a couple of inches of water and soak overnight (or at least 6 hours) in the fridge.

To make the Cinnamon Cashew Cream: While the fruit broils, drain and rinse the soaked cashews. 
Place the cashews into a high-speed blender. Add the dates, cinnamon, vanilla, and 1/2 cup fresh water.   Puree for 1-2 minutes, until completely smooth. 

To finish the dish: Plate the fruit and drizzle with Cashew Cinnamon Cream.  Serve immediately. 

Chef's Notes: This Cashew Cream is a dairy-free base for experimenting with different flavors. You can swap out the cinnamon for ginger, cardamom, or pumpkin pie spice. It freezes well so a double-batch is a good idea.

Yield:  1 cup Cashew Cream
