Carm's Whipped Cream
Why I Love This Recipe
My mom used to make this as a dessert topping, but it is also perfect as a delicious, knock-out dessert. Your guests will always say, "This is delicious...what is it?" Just smile knowingly. (Hint: there's not a cow in sight!)
Ingredients You'll Need
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.
