Irish Cream – Plant Based
Recipe from: Natalia Vignola, Vernon, BC
This decadent Irish Cream is a must try! Plus, it has the bonus of being plant based, so no dairy for those who avoid it, no hidden preservatives, or questionable ingredients. Perfect to drink on its own, or add it to coffee or your favourite cocktail!
1 cup cashews, soaked until soft
1 cup almond milk
1 cup water
1 cup Irish whisky
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 fl oz coffee
1 tsp vailla extract
2 tsp cocoa powder, dutch processed
1/4 tsp salt
Start by blending the raw soaked cashews with the 1 cup of water and salt until totally smooth and silky to create a cashew cream. Don’t be afraid to let you blender run until the mixture starts to warm, a longer blend will help the end product be totally smooth.
Then add all remaining ingredients and blend again until everything is totally combined.
Chill and keep stored in the fridge. As it doesn’t contain emulsifiers, if separation occurs after chilling just give it a shake.
