How to Make Cashew Cream [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews

Preparation

  1. Put cashews in a bowl and cover with cold water. Soak for 4 hours.
  2. Drain cashews. Place in a high-powered blender or food processor.
  3. Cover with cold water and blend until smooth. Use less water for a thicker cashew cream. I’ve also used non-dairy milk instead of water for an extra creamy sauce.

Notes

You can double this recipe if you want, but I’ve found that this makes plenty. I only use it sparingly or for special recipes that call for cream because the fat content.

Is this good as a 1 to 1 substitute for any recipe needing cream? What about heavy cream? What else can it be a substitute for?

So for the butter we blend the nuts alone and for the icecream we add a little water!

Use it on certain desserts, use it as a fruit dip, many ways. Just stop and think for a moment. Soon you won't be able to keep enough on hand. What a great recipe. Thank you- one green planet for sharing.....c

I just made a fennel, dill and mushroom creamy pasta sauce using cashew cream. It was amazing.

I LOVE cashew cream but get an upset stomach whenever I eat it... I'm fine eating cashew butter and cashews, but cashew cream sauce makes me really ill. Any ideas why? Does anyone else have this experience?
