Homemade, cinnamon vanilla bean cashew cream layered with tart green apples, crumbled This Bar Saves Lives and a “salted caramel” date drizzle on top! I made this little baby to-go and tucked it safely in the passenger seat on my way to work. Precious cargo 😉
Any flavor of @thisbar will do! Wild blueberry pistachio, dark chocolate cherry & sea salt, Madagascar vanilla honey & almond or peanut butter strawberry & sea salt. I used wild blueberry pistachio + Madagascar vanilla honey & almond. All of them are fantastic!
Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Cashew Cream
1 cup raw unsalted cashews (soaked in water over night)
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla bean paste pinch of salt
Drain the cashews. Pour 1/4 cup of fresh water and the rest of the ingredients into a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy. You may need to add more water depending on the consistency you desire.
“Salted Caramel Sauce”
3 soft medjool dates
2 tbsp water
pinch of salt
Blend in a food possessor or mash with the back of a fork (whatever is easiest for you) until smooth. Strain sauce through a mesh sieve to remove any hard bits of date.
