Fruit and Nut Cream

Not too sweet, but very creamy, this is yum with fresh fruit, pancakes, or just a spoon.

This recipe is slightly tweaked from “The Liver Cleansing Diet”, written by Dr Sandra Cabot back in 1996. I didn’t follow this diet, but I liked some of the recipes. This one is a favourite.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw cashews and/or blanched almonds (ideally but not essentially, soaked overnight in the fridge in water)
  • juice of one orange
  • enough water to cover the cashews when added to the blender with the orange juice
  • 1 green apple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • (optional, as I don’t think it needs any sweetening) 2 tbsp honey, agave nectar, coconut nectar, or maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Drain the nuts, if you soaked them
  2. Put everything into the blender (I use my Vitamix) and whizz until it’s smooth and silky-creamy with no graininess (you may need to adjust the amount of liquid to get the consistency you like)
  3. Keep in the refrigerator, the cream will thicken as it cools and will keep for about 3 or 4 days
