- Almond Or Cashew "Whipped Cream"
by Abbey's Vegetarian Recipes
1 cup almonds or cashews
¾ cup water
1 Tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
½ teaspoon vanilla (optional)
For the smoothest consistency, use cashews or peeled almonds. Because of their alkaline
nature, almonds help keep your blood at a neutral Ph. And if you buy them raw, they'll
germinate when you soak them. Note for raw friends: Cashews are heated after being picked,
even those labeled "raw".
- Soak 1 cup of almonds or cashews in 2 cups of water. If you're in a
very warm climate, soak them in your refrigerator. After 8-12 hours, discard the soaking
water and rinse the nuts. In a blender, place the nuts and enough fresh water to allow the
blender to operate. Blend, gradually adding enough water to achieve a smooth consistency.
Yields 1 ½ - 1 ¾ cups.
