Soak the cashews overnight or at least for a couple of hours.
1 cup raw cashews
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup filtered water
Soak your raw cashews overnight or for at least two hours.
Drain the water you used to soak the cashews off.
Put cashews, vanilla, and 1 cup of filtered water into your blender. ( I use a Blendtec, but I'm sure others will work just as well.)
Mix for 30 seconds.
Cashew cream is great for morning coffee ( I make lattes out of mine. Recipe to follow), a topping for berries, ice cream, etc. You can also use it as a sauce for fettucine alfredo if you make it savory (Recipe to follow).
The sky is the limit with this stuff. I use it all the time!
