Pear and Cashew Cream

I love the taste of cream but due to the effects on my health, I have to avoid it. The pear and cashew cream is my favourite substitute and I can even feed it to my one-year-old.

1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least a few minutes in water

1 large can pears or equivalent in smooth, fresh pears, mostly drained

1/4 cup milk (of any sort) or 2 heaped tbsps coconut cream

1 pinch salt

1 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp liquid sweetener

A good blender that won’t leave chunky bits in the cream

Drain water from cashews and most of the liquid from pears. Blend and add milk if needed (sometimes it doesn’t need milk). For an extra creamy effect add 2 tbsps coconut cream instead of milk. Make sure it is smooth.
