I am a devout cream dreamer. But, when I discovered my intolerance to dairy and became a vegan, I thought I'd be left longing for the rest of my life. Enter the buttery cashew, and problem solved.

In the plant-based world, the cashew is our cow, and she yields rich milk and cream. This basic vanilla cashew cream is super easy, and is a fantastic staple to serve with desserts or use as a base for puddings, cakes, and other sweet treats. Soak your cashews for the smoothest texture and to make the cream more digestible, and then slather it on everything in sight.

Try it in these berry breakfast parfaits. Oh my...
