You know by now, that I like to make tasty & invented cashew cheese spreads, all invented by me, moi!
I do think a lot of you have tried a few of them like my vegan strawberry cashew spread, this was more like a thicker vegan strawberry cashew yoghurt, my vegan pear & cashew cheese spread & my vegan rucola ( arugula ) cashew cheese spread. If you liked & loved them the same way, as my husband & I did , then I know you will love this home-made cashew, chocolate & pumpkin spread! Check it out!
How to use it all up?
1. It is great to eat like that, with a lovely spoon, straight from the jar!
2. It is excellent as a lovely cheese spread on some toast or on a lovely sandwich!
3. It is great too, as a lovely spread onto pancakes!
4. Lovely to pour over your morning muesli!
5. Pour it over vegan ice-cream!
6. It is lovely to enjoy, smeared onto a fresh slice of bread!
7. Lovely to eat on a slice of vegan cake
Read on How I made it! 🙂
1. Pumpkin, chocolate & cashew spread: For 5 smaller jam pots!
3 cups of raw & un-roasted cashews, soaked for 1 night in clear water, well-rinsed & well-drained
2 cups home-made roasted pumpkin purée
1 cup of vegan chocolate drops, similar to milk chocolate!
4 to 5 tablespoons maple syrup, I used 4 tablespoons
2 teaspoons of home-made pumpkin pie spice
1. First, melt your vegan chocolate drops ” au-bain-marie “. Let it cool a bit. Pour it into your Vitamix. Place all of your ingredients in this order into your Vitamix or power-blender. Place the tamper into your fitting lid & press the power on, go from low-speed, from 1 to 10 & push onto higher power. Use the tamper & push all the ingredients into the blades & blend until it is to your liking. I blended it for about 1 to 2 minutes. I checked the consistency & tasted it. It was ready. Turn the high power off, turn the lower speed from 10 to 1 & turn the power off. Taste! Mine tasted fabulous!! It is a bit sweeter but not too sweet. If you don’t have a Vitamix, mix everything well with an emulsion blender & then after mashing & puréeing the cashews, whisk everything well together. Taste much in between. You must taste the chocolate, the pumpkin spice & the cashews in the background. But I had to place my creation in some lovely jam pots with fitting lids & placed them in the fridge to cool off & to stiffen up a bit. They were great & thick enough as it is & they were ready to use & to eat up! This vegan pumpkin, chocolate cashew cheese spread is so tasty! If the pots are in the fridge for a longer time, you must stir into the spread with a smaller spoon so that the maple syrup is well incorporated into the mix. Yummy Yum!
Great to give away as a special food gift, at Christmas! Store in the fridge.
