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!

Recipe: For about 500 ml =2 cups

Ingredients:

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!!

Method:

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:

MMM!
MMM!

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

Method:

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™‚

  1. Yum Yum, Sophie! This dip or this looks like a thicker yoghurt too! The uses are endless!

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

  3. 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.

  4. Hoi Sophie,
    It’s a good idea for a dessert! Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe.

  5. 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!!

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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!

  9. 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

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