Can’t resist cream, but dairy doesn’t do your body good? Try making a smooth, velvety, vegan substitute with two wholesome ingredients: raw cashews and water! Watch this video from Maura Knowles, founder of Mac ‘n Mo’s Morselicious Treats, for a helpful how-to plus some fun ways to enjoy this versatile recipe staple.

Craving something crunchy? Put down that bag of chips and make yourself one of these crispy, nutritious “cakes” instead. Homemade cashew cheese is spread over a brown rice cake, then topped with rich sundried tomatoes, tasty capers and a sprinkling of hemp seeds. A quick toast in the oven and you’ve got a satisfying snack that’s actually good for you!
When it comes to successful (and creative) cooking, the secret’s in the sauce. With a good sauce, you can build many different meals and snacks — from pasta and pizza to stuffed veggies and delicious dips!
Over the years, I’ve perfected several sauce recipes that have garnered the hungry-kid-and-husband seal of approval. (No small feat!) I like to make them on Sundays so I can easily assemble various meals throughout the week — because less time spent cooking means more time spent with the family!
Drizzled on fruit, swirled into coffee, spread on a warm muffin—cashew cream is a dairy-free delight you can dollop atop just about anything, without guilt! Made from just two ingredients—raw cashews and water—simply adjust the liquid for a thinner (“milk-like”) or thicker (“frosting-like”) cream. Drop in some vanilla, coconut, almond or even mint extract for a flavor twist on the natural, nutty taste!
