Vanilla Cashew Date Spread


It's customary to dip apples in honey in honor of Rosh 
Hashana, for a Sweet New Year...

This year we made something different...


Vanilla Cashew Date Spread! 

All you need are 3 ingredients: 
Dates, Cashews and a few drops of Vanilla.

So easy, delicious, filling, healthy, and extremely versatile... 

For 1 cup of spread use about 8 dates, 1 cup raw cashews 
(or 1 cup raw cashew butter) and ½ teaspoon vanilla

Soak dates in 1 cup of water for 30 minutes, then strain, but save a few tablespoons of this water. In a blender or food processor whip cashews and dates and slowly add water, little by little, until smooth consistency is reached
Also delicious on bread, pancakes, waffles, muffins, crackers...

If you want it sweeter, add more dates. Less sweet? Use fewer dates. 

Experiment and enjoy!

Wishing you and yours a Happy, Healthy 
& Sweet New Year!
