Cashew Cream – creamy goodness

Vegan cream free spirited sistersThis plant-based alternative to heavy cream is extremely versatile and works in many recipes.

Cashews are a great source of healthy fats for our bodies. Healthy fats help our bodies to absorb fat-soluble vitamins and can help reduce bad cholesterol.

Try it as a base for vegan sour cream, vegan alfredo sauce, dips, potato salad dressing, and much more.

This deliciously creamy goodness can also be used as a sweet substitute. Add 1-2 medjool dates, and a splash of vanilla to the blender for a sweet cream to have over fruit or in place of whipped cream.

Whip this one up, pop it in the fridge and it will last for 3-4 days. Use that time to try out new flavors!
