Cashew Whipped Cream

A light and creamy topping flavored with cashews, dates, and a hint of orange, this cream can be used in place of tofu or other nondairy whipped toppings on your favorite desserts. It’s also suitable for raw foodists.

Makes 1-1/2 cups

What You Need:

  • 1-1/2 cups raw cashews
  • 6 pitted medjool dates
  • Filtered water
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice

What You Do:
