Vegan Toffee Cashew Cream Recipe

This vegan toffee cashew cream has a lovely flavour thanks to the squishy dates and drop of vanilla.

It’s the perfect topping for cookies and cakes, or great frozen to eat as a dessert with fruit.

Prep time: 45 minutes

Serves 2



  1. 50g cashews
  2. 7 dates
  3. 1 tsp solid coconut oil, melted
  4. Dash of vanilla extract
  5. 4 tbsp non-dairy milk (add more for a thinner cream)


Place the cashews and dates in a bowl and soak in recently boiled water for at least 30 minutes.


Drain the cashews and dates in a colander and return to the bowl.

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth using an electronic hand blender (use a food processor, if you have one).

That’s it! Keep it in the fridge for a few days, or freeze to use at a later date.
