Cashew Pudding

I was inspired by a recent recipe on Detoxinista for a raw cashew pudding. I adapted the recipe to our taste, bumping up the honey and coconut oil and swapping in coconut milk. Oddly enough, the eenager loved it. So much he ate 2 servings and asked if I would make it again. soon. So I did and tweaked the recipe the second time, using maple syrup and cinnamon for a different taste. And my thoughts? The second version, with maple syrup, is tastier!

I found that little dessert bowls worked perfect for serving in. It is rich, only a little is needed.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw cashews

  • 1 Tbsp raw organic extra virgin coconut oil

Directions:

Add the cashews to a small mixing bowl, cover with 2 cups filtered water and cover. Leave on the counter to soak for 3 hours, rinse and drain.

Add the cashews and remaining ingredients to a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix, process on high until smooth, tamping as needed.

  1. Done this before, will do it again. Cashews are just awesome!

  2. Finally got the kids enjoying the flavor of raw cashews, so a whole new world of creamy yum awaits – your timing is impeccable. Thanks.

  3. I think I can tempt my husband with this recipe and then use it to talk him into getting me a Vitamix. LOL! Looks yummy and simple too!

    • For years I scoffed at a Vitamix thinking “how can it be worth that much $$?”. First use of it I was sold on it. I cannot believe how it makes everything SO smooth! Butter him up ;-) You deserve it!

  4. MMMMMMM,..;I have made your 2 versions & loved the maple one the best too. I added 1 tablespoon extra maple syrup! Yummm! A huga thanks to you! ;)
