Vegan cashew nut and vanilla cream

Pudding & Cake Serves 4 10 min
This vegan vanilla cream is rich, velvety, and totally delicious. It’s very easy to make, using simple ingredients. Adjust the amount of plant-based milk to get the thickness that you prefer, from a thin sauce to a thicker custard. It works very well with cakes or poached fruit, or just serve it alongside any of your favourite desserts for the ultimate comfort food!


  • ½ cup cashew nuts
  • ½ cup plant-based milk, e.g. ReRooted oat or almond milk
  • ¼ tsp vanilla powder
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch of salt
