Cashew Fruit Parfait

By blending raw cashews, a cream is created which can be used in place of "heavy cream". This is a common vegan substitution called, "Cashew Cream." A slight modification can turn this cashew cream into a high protein, sweet parfait!

Cashew Cream Parfait

Cashew Fruit Parfait

2 cups raw cashews
2/3 cup Coconut Oil (melted into liquid on low heat)
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup water
Fresh Fruit and/or granola

1. Soak cashews 12-15hrs, remove water, and replace with enough fresh water to cover cashews.

2. Blend cashews with agave, vanilla,  water,  and melted coconut oil in blender at high speed. (pour hot oil carefully)

3. Pour into small individual servings. (go for smaller servings...the cashews will fill you up quick.)  Chill servings in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.

4. Top with fresh fruit, granola, or
your favorite topping.
