Creamy Cashew Icing (Dairy-free)

 

This creamy icing is reminiscent of traditional cream cheese icing–> but without the heavy cream cheese!

Loaded with nutrient-rich raw cashews, it’s not your average sweet topping. It’s a great source of manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and vitamin K, and happens to be bursting with anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, thanks to the coconut oil and raw honey.

Enjoy over your favorite cupcakes and quick breads for a creamy, decadent treat!

Creamy Cashew Icing (Dairy-free)
makes 1 1/4 cups

Ingredients:

3/4 cup raw cashews, soaked 2-3 hours and rinsed
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
3 tablespoons raw honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

2-4 tablespoons water, as needed for blending

Directions:

Combine the first six ingredients in a high-powered blender, and blend until smooth and creamy, adding water as necessary to facilitate blending.

Adjust flavor to taste, then transfer to a bowl and chill in the freezer for at least an hour, to allow the icing to thicken.

The longer it chills, the thicker it will get!

Spoon it over your favorite baked goods, and serve immediately! (Keep the frosted treats chilled, if not serving immediately.)
