Vegan Gluten-free Raw Cherry Cashew Yoghurt! :)

on 11/07/2014

Yesterday afternoon, I invented this glorious cherry cashew yoghurt!! ooh yes! I sweetened it a bit with pitted dates & a bit of raw maple syrup! Check it all out!



Yum,…Yum,…I hear you thinking! I made it pretty simple,….Let’s check it out again!

Before going into the fridge to stiff up a bit! :)

Before going into the fridge to stiff up a bit! πŸ™‚

I used a combo of soaked cashews & not-soaked cashews, pitted dates, fresh pitted cherries, 1 teaspoon pure raw maple syrup & clean water. That is it! πŸ™‚ Simple yet so delicious! This cherry cashew yoghurt is a bit sweet but not too sweet!!Β You could drink it straight away, like a pouring yoghurt or eat it instantly, but I put a fitted lid on & placed it in the fridge, for at least 5 hours, to stiff up a bit,…Yum yum yummy! πŸ™‚

Recipe: For about 5 cups = 1250 ml cherry cashew yoghurt


1 cup soaked cashews, rinsed & well-drained, soak water discarded

1/2 cup of not-soaked raw cashews

2 cups of clean water ( or less to make a thicker yoghurt )

1 + 1/2 cup of pitted cherries

7 pitted normal dates, not Medjool! If you have Medjool dates, you need a lot less dates, they are sweeter & larger!!!!

1 teaspoon raw maple syrup


1. Take your Vitamix & add water, soaked & not-soaked cashews, pitted dates & pitted cherries. Place fitted lid in with the tamper. Blend on high & on full-speed until it is fully joined by using the tamper to push ingredients into the running blades. My yoghurt was ready after 15 to 30 seconds of blending. Taste! You must taste the sweeter cherries & the cashew yoghurt. Pour into a big container with fitted lid. Place into the fridge for at least 5 hours to stiff up a bit. This is a more pourable yoghurt, not too thick! Maybe next time, I will make a more stiffer cashew yoghurt by using less water! πŸ˜‰

It must look something like this:



Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    Dates and cherries…what a great combination. I love this raw cherry cashew yogurt! I would like to let it stiffen up in the fridge, too, just like you did. Although I might not be able to wait!!!

    Hello darling, hope all is well! I am always amazed how you keep on coming up with original drink after drink. This one looks fabulous!

  15. Brilliant idea Sophie!!!

    • Sophie33 says:

      I thought so too but it only keeps 3 whole days in the fridge,..but it was long gone before that! πŸ˜‰

  16. Looks so fresh and yummy– love cherries but never would have imagined them with cashews. great idea!!

  17. I’ve been saying for years now that someone needs to make a cashew yogurt! I wish that the big commercial producers (hint hint, So Delicious) would catch on, but in the meantime, this looks like a fantastic and fresh solution.

    • Sophie33 says:

      yeahh! It will only keep for 2 to 3 days in the fridge though, but it was gone after 2 days, in our house! Maybe the next time, I will be making it more thick & use less water!

  18. Jill says:

    I made this & it is so wonderful, so delicious & so apart too!

    Creamy, creamy, tasty! x
