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.

Ingredients:

1 cup raw organic cashews or raw organic cashew butter
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup raw organic honey

Directions:

1. Combine all ingredients in a strong blender.

2. Blend until smooth. Add more water if needed.

Transfer sweet cashew cream to a glass jar, cap the jar with a lid, and chill in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours before using. Sweet cashew cream will stay fresh in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Please note: If you prefer a thick cream, use less water and pause the blender to give the ingredients a good mix/swirl one or more times.

I have found that if the cashews are soaked in water for 2-6 hours before making the cream, the cream blends up easier...and a more creamier end product results.
