Sweet Vegan Cashew Cream

Easy Vegan Cashew Cream

Sweet Vegan Cashew Cream is perfect for topping everything from healthy granola to indulgent cupcakes! Just blend the ingredients together with just enough water to get your blender going.

Use raw cashews for a mild, more neutral favour or use roasted cashews for a robust aromatic flavour.

You can also make this sweet cashew cream lower carb by using calorie-free sweeteners like monkfruit or erythritol.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 1/2 cup cashews, raw or dry roasted
  • dash of sea salt
  • 1 tsp your favorite sweetener (totally optional and to taste)


For this small amount, a stick blender works best. Combine all the ingredients in your blender cup and add a little water; enough to come up halfway to the level of the cashews. Blend until smooth, adding a little water if your blender needs it.

Use this cashew cream immediately, or store up to 3 days in the fridge.


If you only have a standard blender, you may need to double the ingredient amounts in order for your blender's blades to reach all the ingredients. Feel free to adjust as required.
