Vegan vanilla almond cream!

Vegan delicious vanilla almond cream!

Vegan delicious vanilla almond cream! Raw apple sliced dipped in this! Yummy!

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the thickness of this vegan vanilla cream!

This is the thickness of this vegan vanilla cream!

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:

48 hours soaked whole almonds, rinsed & drianed well!

1 cup of 48 hours soaked, rinsed & drained whole almonds

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! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ย 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 ย 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:

A yummy healthy breakfast!

A yummy healthy breakfast!You can add fruit but I didn’t bother!

How did I make it?

Ingredients, for 1 smaller breakfast:

3 tablespoons gluten-free oat flakes

6 tablespoons home-made vegan vanilla almond cream

1 tablespoon raw cacao nibs


1. Place your gluten-free oat flakes in a bowl. Top with your vegan vanilla almond cream & scatter your raw cacao nibs over the sides & top! Enjoy instantly! ๐Ÿ™‚ MMM! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Belinda says:

    This vegan vanilla almond cream looks pretty delicious, Sophie! Yummmm!

  3. apsara says:

    Super and simple too! Can a blender be used instead of vitamix?

  4. Love this, one of my favorite things is homemade vanilla almond milk. I have to try making a cream, great for dipping or as you said a healthful breakfast. That cream with the cacao nibs and oat flakes looks too good.

  5. Lovely!! An alternative to cashew cream โ˜บ๏ธ x

  6. Looks divine! Can’t wait to give it a try too.

  7. lou says:

    Love this ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Koko says:

    Sophie, this looks really yummy!! I don’t use almond enough in cream like this. I always use cashews, but of course almonds would be just as delicious! I think I would keep the lovely vanilla flavour of this and maybe add some cacao nibs like you did. It sounds really good. I know I will be trying this recipe soon!!

  13. This sounds delicious Sophie! I wonder how it would be as a creamer for coffee? Celeste ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Charlotte says:

    Looks lovely!

  15. Looks delish! Send me a bowl please.

  16. Liz says:

    how pretty ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Carolyn Jung says:

    Now that looks like a creamy indulgence you can actually feel good about eating! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. Ally says:

    I love the look of your breakfast. What a yummy way to start the day. I think your cream would pair nicely with my pear and walnut cake, or a rich chocolate cake. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    • Sophie33 says:

      Thanks, a sliced banana added with my breakfast would be way better but I didn’t have a banana. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  19. It sounds very tasty Sophie ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. hotlyspiced says:

    It’s amazing how this cream is made from such few ingredients. I love the look of this. It looks smooth and creamy and really delicious xx

  21. Barbara says:

    What a great recipe, Sophie! Must be delicious dipping fruit into that!

  22. What a cool recipe. I learned something about almonds and soaking. Thank you.

  23. Pam says:

    What a tasty dip!

  24. mmmarzipan says:

    Looks SO good Sophie! Could you use vanilla powder (from a vanilla bean pod) and have it count as raw?

  25. uberdish says:

    Oh, yum!! My mother-in-law loves to make birchermuesli – a traditional Swiss dessert or breakfast. Your almond cream would make a great cream replacement in her recipe. It, too, contains oats and a variety of grated fruit and berries. Super healthy!

  26. laurasmess says:

    This looks absolutely delish Sophie. I’ve tried coconut cream before as a dairy cream substitute but never a nut cream like this. I definitely need to give it a go! x

  27. Deena Kakaya says:

    Naturally complementary flavours in such a wonderfully simple recipe. Great idea x

  28. Make Something Mondays says:

    Ohhh gosh, I’m ready to eat my monitor right now. That looks so yummy.
