This is my own recipe from over at my thewiseasswife.com site, for vegan heavy cream. This can be used in a 1:1 ration in a recipe that calls for heavy cream. Since it contains just water and raw cashews, it is naturally vegan and gluten free, and much better for you than regular heavy cream!
Cashew “Cream” Recipe:
1 cup of raw cashews
2 – 4 cups of distilled or filtered water
Start by soaking the cashews for an hour or two in water, enough to cover them completely. Then toss the cashews in a blender and keep adding water until it hits your desired creamy consistency. Use it in a 1:1 ratio in any recipe that you would regular cream. The rest can be frozen for a few months.
