This cashew cream recipe makes a whipped thick sweet cream that is vegan and very versatile. Adding a little of this can make your raw desserts even more special. It makes a delectable topping for many desserts, can be used in a filling for a crepe-like raw wrap or in a parfait, as I made here recently. This cashew cream recipe is a great one to have in your repertoire as it is so quick and easy to make. It will enable you to whip up a delicious, luscious dessert with minimal time and effort.

We loved this dessert. If you don’t have granola on hand, another great idea is to blend half of the cashew cream with some extra berries and use that for your bottom layer.   You can also double up the layers if you have a taller parfait glass to use. Hope you love this dessert idea as much as we did, and the cashew cream recipe too!

Soak cashews for at least 2 hours before using them, so they are soft and process into a smooth cream.

Drain cashews and add them, along with the rest of ingredients, to the blender jar and blend until smooth. Add just enough water as necessary for the blender to blend, so that the cashew cream is as thick and smooth as possible. It’s so easy to make!
