Healthy Sweet Cashew Cream Recipe

If you enjoy adding cream to healthy pies, cakes, berries, cereals, and tea, give this sweet cashew cream recipe a try - it's rich in healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, which are good for keeping your heart and blood vessels healthy.

Cashew cream is also naturally rich in magnesium, which your body needs to keep your bones, teeth, muscles, and nervous system optimally healthy.

If you don't need your cream to be too sweet, simply omit the honey, or use less than what's listed below. Quality cashews have a natural hint of sweetness that makes pure cashew cream quite pleasant on its own. Read more about Healthy Sweet Cashew Cream Recipe
