Carm's Whipped Cream
1 1/2 cups raw cashews (or walnuts)
2 Tbsp dates
1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
almond extract (just a few drops)
Soak nuts in water, just enough to cover them; chill for two hours.
In a blender, combine the nuts, dates, orange juice, and almond extract.
Blend; use a rubber spatula to scrape down sides. Check for sweetness. Add tiny amounts of very cold water if stiff. Blend until fluffy. Use immediately.
