Orange Cashew Cream

IMG-20130330-WA0001

This is the frosting feature on my RAWmarkable Carrot Cake recipe. It tastes so good, and the addition of the orange in there gives is a great flavor!

All the cashew creams are fairly simple and the same, just variations in the ingredients to change the flavors. Because of the neutral flavor and texture of cashew nuts, they make the perfect base for any raw frosting or cream. You can blend the base and add any flavors to it you want, I encourage you to try it!

You will need:

– 2 cups soaked cashews (at least 2 hours, preferably 4)

– 4 to 5 pitted dates

– Juice of 2 or 3 oranges and some pulp

– 1/2 tsp of cinnamon

– 1/4 tsp of nutmeg

Place all the ingredients in your high-powered blender, and pulse-blend until smooth.

The mixture will be extremely thick and creamy so you will have to start and stop the blender several times to scrape the sides and get the mixture going again.

Once it is fully blended, scrape out of the blender and put in the fridge to harden for a bit. Afterward, you can take it out, use as a frosting for cake or cupcakes, or eat on its own! This will store in the fridge for several days!
