This is VERY yummy, but best saved only for Thanksgiving because it's so rich.
I sometimes put it in the freezer for a short while before serving.
Recipe By : The American Vegetarian Cookbook
Serving Size: 2
  • 1 cup raw cashew pieces
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sunflower oil, approximately
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • pinch salt
Blend cashews and water to form a thick cream.
Slowly add the oil in a fine stream until cream thickens.
Blend in maple syrup, vanilla, and salt.
Chill and serve.
Cream will thicken substantially when chilled.

NOTES : From author:
Serve this delicacy on cold fresh-fruit pies, chilled pumpkin pie, carob or chocolate pie, gingerbread, or anything you feel calls for a little whipped cream.
It's easy to make and enthusiastically received.
