We were playing around in the kitchen on day because we were wanting to make a smooth cream, almost like whipped cream in a way. We wanted it to be rich and melt in your mouth kind of cream.

A dessert that was almost velvety like.

Get cashews, maple, stevia and vanilla delivered to your doorstep and save money here. 

Substitution ideas:

  • may replace maple with any liquid sweetener of choice; if you want to do it all stevia base than you will need to add in about 2-4 tablespoons of water and increase the amount of stevia to your desired level of sweetness
  • may replace lemon zest with either lime or orange
  • and can use any flavorings you desire (we just love cardamom and use it all the time)

We are just visualizing how scrumptious and yummy this cashew cream was!

Something extra for fun we crumbled some brownie crumbs on top. for something a little chocolaty.

Now that is one mini coffee mug of  pure bliss if you ask us!  a little piece of dessert heaven.

Do you like creamy desserts? Do you like the spice cardamom? What is your favorite spice to add to desserts? What is your favorite nut to make creamy non-dairy things with: cashews, macadamia nuts, almonds, or pine nuts?

  1. Loooooove creamy desserts! But I’ve never tried cardamom…must try! And, it’s not really considered a spice I guess, but chocolate is my fav!!! Cocoa powder adds flavor to everything! Even chili!

  2. yumm! this looks amazing…and so creative 🙂 i too am on a very restrictive diet and eat only limited foods (lots of wild salmon, sardines, vegetable, and healthy fats) I would love to read the book “Diet Wise” that you read because i suffer from some inflammatory digestive disorder and headaches and fatigue. no one can figure out what is wrong with me, so i found it really inspiring to find that you are taking charge of your own health. Thanks so much!! ..how do you know what foods to eat that don’t affect you?

    1. Caroline he explains in the book how to pick what foods to start with, it varies for each person depending on your regular diet.

  4. How do you make that look so damn delicious!! I’ve tried to make cashew creams a few times and I don’t know what happens but it always tastes awful. Maybe it’s the cashews I use? Ahh, someday I’ll be brave enough to try again 🙂

    Posted on September 16, 2011 at 9:41 am
    1. Jen might be the cashews, do you soak them first?? using raw or roasted?? do try them again, I promise cashew creams are wonderful

  5. I just wanted to say that I love your blog. You are so creative with your ingredients. I also tried socca for the first time a few months ago from your blog. The first try was a fail and then I powered up the courage to try it again and it turned out amazing, so fast and so easy.
    You guys are great 🙂

    1. Tatyana yay for socca!!! we still get failures mixed in when we make it, but always taste good

  6. that cashew cream looks scrumptious! I love creamy vegan desserts, and apart from dark chocolate, softserve and ice-cream are my favorites. Cardamon, cinnamon and vanilla are ideal spices and additions to my desserts and my favorite nut to make non-dairy things are cashews for cakes and ice-cream and sunflower seeds for dressings. mhmmmmm

  8. oh, you KNOW I love this! I love cardamom and this time of year is when I seem to go crazy with it – it’s in everything. 😉

  10. I LOVE how versatile cashew cream is! I usually use it in tomato sauce- awesome! This look amaze

    Posted on September 16, 2011 at 12:20 pm
    1. thanks Erica, and yes love how cashew can be used for so many things!

      Posted on September 16, 2011 at 4:18 pm
  11. Ooh…you know I adore cardamom! It’s my favorite! I love creamy desserts but haven’t been eating them lately.
    Just had a good talk with my ND about my deteriorating mental health lately and why eating more fats would help get it better. So maybe it’s time to start having a few nuts again.
    I’m just afraid of the omega6 in nuts but cashews don’t have much omega 6 and mac nuts have almost none. If they weren’t so expensive I’d use them a lot more. My favorite is coconut.
    I’ll try to blog about it soon–been craving gingerbread so maybe I’ll make some cream like this to go on top!
    love
    Ela

    1. I know Ela I wish nuts and seeds were a little less expensive too! coconut is our favorite as well though we have a feeling we might be sensitive to it 🙁 but we just have to wait and see once we add in it back into our diets.

      Posted on September 16, 2011 at 4:20 pm
  12. oh my gosh that looks sinful!! I have never had cashew cream, but have always wanted to try it!! I can only image how versatile it can be on tasty treats!!
