Super Simple and Easy to make Vegan Maple Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting! Paleo friendly and delicious dairy free cream cheese frosting alternative!
Okay tell me. Were you that kid who only ate the frosting on cake and cupcakes? You know, the one that purposely asks for the end piece just so you can get more frosting. Yes, that was me. FOR SURE. In fact, I once tried to tell my mom that my whole bowl of cream cheese frosting was just yogurt. Haha, she didn’t buy it.
These days, my love frosting has definitely lightened up. Thank goodness! Otherwise I might have a bajillion cavities by now. Right? And I’d also like to thank my seasonal allergies and constantly trying to improve my gut health for expanding my “dairy free and vegan” horizon! Hence this vegan maple cashew cream cheese frosting! Hey, sometimes limiting dairy and eggs can bring you into a whole new world of sweets and baking. I’m always up for that challenge.
This challenge isn’t only for myself, it’s for my niece as well. Heck it’s for all those who also have to limit dairy or eggs or casein. Those sneaky sneaky food allergies.
But have no fear because CASHEWS are here! Yes –> EASY PEASY MAPLE CASHEW Cream cheese
And you know what? It’s pretty darn amazing. Soaking the cashews and then blending into a cream with a little maple, cinnamon, and extracts equals AMAZINGNESS! Not to mention nutrient dense. Haha, I didn’t ever think the words frosting and nutrient dense would go together, but with this cashew frosting, THEY SO DO!
Okay friends, give it a whirl! Try out cashew cream cheese frosting on cakes, muffins, etc. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. If my dairy loving family and friends approve, then I know you will too. And your tummy might thank you.
