Enjoy something sweet for Valentine’s Day!  Kula Baby has been eating this cashew cream on his oatmeal for the past week.  It’s a great way to add a healthy fat and protein to your child’s meal.  It also contains real fruit.

Fruity Cashew Cream tastes like dessert (He eats it with applesauce and goes crazy…in a good way).  I made it by mistake when he wouldn’t eat his pear slices one day.  I threw them into the food processor with my cashews and water and discovered it was a very yummy mistake.  This recipe was inspired by Rebecca Katz’s Cashew Cream recipe in the cookbook One Bite at a Time.

Fruity Cashew Cream

Fruity Cashew Cream
  • 1 cup of organic raw cashews, soaked overnight (this softens them up and also makes them easier to digest)
  • 1 cup of filtered water
  • 1 pear, peeled and chopped
  1. In a food processor or Vitamix add the nuts and blend/chop them up for a minute or two.  Add the water and pears and keep blending until the cashews turn into a nice cream.  You can also add cinnamon to this recipe for a nice kick.  Serve on oatmeal, soups, applesauce, etc.  The options are endless.  Enjoy!

Note: the cashew cream will be thicker than the cream in the photo above—I had a hard time finding an image.  I must learn to take better food photos soon 🙂
