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.
