Indulge in a wholesome treat that tantalizes your taste buds and nourishes your body with an array of health benefits. The combination of raw cashew nuts, maple syrup, lemon juice, ground cinnamon, ground cardamom, soy milk, and vanilla bean creates a symphony of flavours and textures that will leave you craving more.

Raw Cashew Nuts:
Raw cashew nuts are a nutritional powerhouse, packed with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, essential minerals like magnesium and zinc, and a good dose of protein. They promote healthy cholesterol levels, support brain function, and provide sustained energy.

Maple Syrup:
A natural sweetener rich in antioxidants, maple syrup offers a healthier alternative to refined sugar. It provides essential minerals such as manganese and zinc, boosts immune function, and helps maintain healthy skin.

Lemon Juice:
Fresh and tangy, lemon juice adds a burst of vitamin C to this recipe. Vitamin C supports immune health, aids in collagen production for radiant skin, and promotes better absorption of iron from plant-based sources.

Ground Cinnamon:
Ground cinnamon not only enhances the flavour profile but also offers anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It may help regulate blood sugar levels, improve heart health, and boost brain function.

Ground Cardamom:
With its exotic and aromatic profile, ground cardamom adds a unique flair to the mix. This spice is known for its digestive benefits, antioxidant properties, and potential to improve oral health.

Soy Milk:
Soy milk is a creamy, dairy-free base for this recipe. It is rich in plant-based protein, essential amino acids, and vitamins like B12. Soy milk supports heart health and bone density and may help lower cholesterol levels.

Vanilla Bean:
The delicate sweetness of vanilla bean complements the other ingredients, offering a warm and comforting flavour profile. Vanilla contains antioxidants, can reduce anxiety and stress, and may have anti-inflammatory properties.

Blending these wholesome ingredients together creates a decadent yet health-conscious cream that can elevate your desserts or stand on its own as a guilt-free indulgence. Whether enjoyed drizzled over fruit, layered in a parfait, or savoured straight from the spoon, this Cashew Cardamom Cream not only delights the senses but also nourishes your body from the inside out. Treat yourself to this luxurious and nutrient-dense creation for a truly satisfying and healthful culinary experience.

Normally you might find me behind the coding of our sites but over the years I have become much more concerned about what has been happening in the kitchen as well - families do that for all of us don't they? Background experience is in Account Management and Web Development but as my passion has grown for WFPB so has my desire to speak out.
