A Simple and Easy way to make Vegan Maple Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting! A Paleo friendly and delicious dairy free cream cheese frosting alternative.
So I guess this is dessert week, because this maple cashew cream frosting recipe is basically a dessert itself, just grab a spoon. No shame, no stress,. But seriously, we’re rockin the maple, dates, and unrefined natural sugars in October ya’ll! It’s allllll good!
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. Ya, 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, but let me eat it anyways to learn my lesson. The lesson where you eat so much you get sick. *Raises hand*
Thank goodness my love for junk-ified frosting has died down. 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! It’s cinnamony (that’s a word), it’s rich but light, it’s just plain divine! 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 pesky food allergies, gah, sometimes they just make being a kid so hard.
Yes –> EASY PEASY vegan CASHEW Cream cheese frosting. All you need is a little natural sugar and spice and we blend it all nice. Haha! Let’s do this!
Nutritional Nerd Alert You didn’t think I’d forget this part, did you?
Sure, soaking the cashews and then blending into a cream with a little maple, cinnamon, and extracts equals AMAZINGNESS! But… did you know that soaking the cashews makes it easier to digest and absorb nutrients? I didn’t ever think the words frosting and nutrient dense would go together, but with this cashew frosting, THEY SO DO!
Okay lovelies, be sure to save this recipe for the upcoming holiday season! Try out cashew cream cheese frosting on cakes, mini cakes, muffins, waffles, cupcakes, 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. Just don’t eat it by the bucket full.
