Today, I invented this tasty Vanilla Almond Cream! All vegan goodness! If you leave out the vanilla extract it is also raw! ;) This is made by soaking whole almonds in clean water for about 48 hours!
This is a bit more thick than normal cream. You can make it to your liking & you can choose how thick you want your almond cream to be. You can add whatever you fancy with it, like cinnamon, or vanilla, like I did or raw cacao nibs or more sweet, by added 1 or 2 more pitted dates. It is up to you! 🙂
Recipe: For about 500 ml =2 cups
1 cup soaked almonds, for 48 hours, 2 nights in the fridge, why? I wasn’t home yesterday, so I made it this morning! Soak them for at least 1 night or at least 8 hours! Your soaked & puffed up whole almonds, will look like this:
3/4 cup of clean water
1/2 teaspoon of a good vanilla extract/ I use home-made
2 dates, or more to your liking, I like my cream not too sweet!!
1. Take your Vitamix-container & add soaked almonds, 3/4 cup of water, vanilla extract & 2 dates. Place fitted lid on with the tamper. I made a thicker cream. If you want to receive a thinner cream, begin by using 1/4 cup of water & gradually add more, if you prefer that! 🙂 Blend on high-speed until fully joined bu using your tamper to push the ingredients into the running blades. It will look something like this:
2. Pour 1/3 of this vegan vanilla almond cream in a lovely dipping pot & dip peeled raw apple slices in it, for a lovely healthy snack, see 1st picture! Or pour this cream into a smaller container with fitted lid & place in the fridge, for later use. Before using, stir the cream round with a spoon so that the vanilla extract is well mixed in! I bet this would also be very yummy with some vegan cake slices! I ate 1/2 of the cream with my morning breakfast, like here:
