I have a genuine love for coffee, as you may have noticed. I’m a black coffee drinker, but every once and a while, there’s a week where I want to cream it up. I can’t have cream without sugar in my coffee and vice versa, so this is just a lil’ sweet to please my taste buds.
Why not make your own coffee creamer? It saves money and you can control the ingredients! This cream is so rich and it stirs into your coffee smoothly. I live in Quebec, so we put maple in everything! Feel free to sub agave nectar and adjust the sweetness level to where you’d like it.
1 cup raw cashews, soaked at least 4 hours (I went for 48 but that’s because I forgot)
1 1/2 cups water
2/3 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Drain soaked cashews and rinse. Combine all ingredients in a blender and let it whirl until smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness to your personal preference, though I thought this was absolutely perfect.
