Raw Whipped Cream

Category: Raw Foods

Suitable for a: raw/vegan diet

Ingredients:

------------------------------------------------------

1 cup almonds or cashews

¾ cup water

1 Tablespoon maple syrup (optional)

½ teaspoon vanilla (optional)

Instructions:

------------------------------------------------------

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.

Again, not my original recipe. But I made it for a raw pie and everyone loved it. I used cashews. And in my opinion, the vanilla is NOT optional. I didnt use maple syrup though. The vanilla is what really gave it its taste.
