Fresh Berries with Cashew Cream

Try this easy recipe for fresh berries with cashew cream. It’s so creamy and luscious. Great as a savory or sweet sauce.

Looking through my pantry the other night, I noticed there was a bag of raw cashews that I had forgotten about.

Since it was late at night and the cashews needed to be soaked, it was a perfect time to do this overnight. You can soak them for 3 hours or more in general. 

The next morning, this luscious cream was made and we enjoyed it over fresh berries for breakfast.

You can use this cream on any sweet or savory dish. Just add whatever sweetness or spices to make it your own.

This is one very versatile “cream” sauce that’s vegan, paleo, gluten free and oh so delicious. 

I think I found a gem! We all loved the cream sauce and hope you will too.

Just a note… You will have to plan ahead for this recipe. The cashews have to soak and then the sauce has to be refrigerated for a few hours after that. Then you can put the dish together.

Why not make it the day before and buy the berries the day you will make this.

Here’s how to make fresh berries with cashew cream…

Directions:

  1. Soak the cashews in cool water for at least 3 hours. Cover the bowl.
  2. When done, drain but save a little of the soaking liquid.
  3. Place the cashews with the small amount of liquid in a high speed blender or food processor and whirl to smooth. Add the almond milk.
  4. Continue to blend, add the rest of the ingredients except the fruit.
    Stop and taste. When you have the right sweetness and smooth creamy texture, you are done. If you have to add a little more almond milk that’s fine.
  5. Place in fridge for a few hours for all the flavors to marry and for the sauce to thicken up a little.
  6. Now, plate your berries in small dessert dishes. Spoon out a tablespoon over the berries. Whatever you have left, go over a second time until you finish the sauce. Sprinkle with chopped toasted cashews and chia seeds if you want.

      Note: If you make a larger batch of cashew cream, store in an airtight container in fridge for up to 2 days.
