Sweet Vanilla Cashew Cream

This is healthy, yummy, dairy free and sugar free!  Almost doesn't seem real?! But it totally is! This is so yummy on fresh berries, in Choffy (if you don't know what this is, click here!) or any drink you want to be creamy and sweet! Or just eat it by the spoonful (I obviously DON'T do this). You should totally try this!

Sweet Vanilla Cashew Cream
makes about two cups

1 cup raw, unsalted cashews
1/2 cup almond milk
2-4 T pure Maple Syrup (depending on sweet you want it)
1 t vanilla extract
a pinch of salt

Place the cashews in a bowl and cover with water. Let them soak for at least two hours.
Drain the water and place the cashews in a blender. Add the almond milk, syrup, vanilla and salt and blend on high for 30 to a minute or until smooth.  Refrigerate to thicken. Will keep in the fridge for unto 5 days or freeze.
