Cashew Cream - Non-Dairy Dessert Topping!

I have been DYING to try a Cashew Creme. 
It is VERY popular in the vegan world, but don't let that scare you! 
Be brave and try something new that is dairy free (making it less saturated fat and easier to digest) 
It was so good, with the perfect amount of sweetness.

We topped our bread pudding with it (and of course I didn't get a pic! ARGH!) 
My kids ate it this morning sprinkled with cinnamon as a fruit dip! YUM!

I have only begun the experimenting! I am sure there are so many fun variations - so stay tuned! :)
This simple delight is topped with Buckwheat Crispies. My new Fav as well!
More to come on those!!

1 C Cashews
3-4 Pitted Dates
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Sugar or honey (totally optional)

1) Soak the cashews and dates either overnight or at least 20 minutes in water. (Just barely cover)
2) Drain half of the water off of the cashews and place in blender. Place dates in blender with their soaking water. Add vanilla and blend for 2-3 minutes. It gets thicker the more you blend. If you place in fridge for a couple hours it thickens even more! Stir in sugar or honey if you would like it a little sweeter. Or try to just enjoy sprinkled with Cinnamon!
