Vegan Whipped Cream

December is the season for desserts.  And isn’t every dessert made better with a dollop of whipped cream?  I recently attended Veg-Appeal’s vegan holiday cooking class and was blown away by their 3-ingredient Whipped Cashew Cream recipe (the link for the Veg-Appeal class is at: www.thefussyfork.com/veg-appeal/).  So much so that I had to share it with you!

First, it’s time to gather the ingredients.  It won’t take much time!

Next, soak the cashews.  Simply, place the cashews in a bowl and pour water on top.

Once the cashews have soaked for a few hours, drain the water.

The cashew cream will taste light, sweet, and creamy.
