Weekly spotlight: making recipes with cashew cream

Fettuccini Alfredo

When you substitute cream in a recipe, you have many options, from store-bought non-dairy creams to coconut milk. Another great way to use a non-dairy alternative in recipes is to use cashew cream. This is different from cashew milk because cashew milk is much more liquid than cashew cream. Cashew cream is soaked cashews that are blended into a luxurious cream that can be used in place of heavy dairy cream or as a cheesy base for a recipe. It also adds a little volume to the dish to make it a little more filling. If you’ve ever wanted to try making cashew nut based meals with cashew cream, these are the recipes! You can make desserts, main dishes and even make cashew cheese; the options seem endless.
