Raw Cashew Whipped Cream

Warm evenings like these screams strawberries and cream. Lucky me not only are our strawberries ripening but also I bought strawberries at the farmers market. For the cream I made raw cashew whipped cream which pair really well with the sweet berries. 

1 cup cashews

Filtered water for soaking the nuts

½ tbs coconut oil

1/2 cup water

2 tbs maple syrup

½ vanilla bean, seeds used

Put nuts in a container filled with enough water to cover and let them soak for at least 2 hours. Drain nuts and in a blender combine the water maple syrup and vanilla beans.

Blend, using a rubber scraper, scrape the sides to help the cream turn over. Slowly add coconut oil. Stop and check for sweetness and consistency, add more water if the cream is still too stiff.

Continue blending until fluffy and smooth. Use immediately.
