Awhile back I discovered a secret ingredient… cashews. It is quite amazing the things you can produce with soaked cashews. This is the first of many cashew recipes I will be posting. If you have not heard of this or are put off by the idea of nuts in a “pudding”, I urge you to give this recipe a try! This raw and dairy free dessert is so simple and quick to make. You will feel guilt free indulging in this healthy Vanilla Pudding.
Dairy Free Vanilla Pudding
- 2 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight (minimum 6 hrs)
- 1/2 cup honey or agave
- 3/4 cup water (use 1/2 cup water for a thick custard texture)
- 1 vanilla bean
- Place all ingredients into high powered blender or Vitamix.
- Blend until smooth.
- Refrigerate overnight before serving. (better to make ahead of time to allow the vanilla flavor to develop)
