Raw Banana Cashew Pudding (Dairy Free)

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Sometimes I get this crazy urge to put things in my food processor and hope they turn out how I imagined.   Almost always they don't turn out and I am left with a giant blob of un-edible mush.  But sometimes weird ideas turn out even more delicious than I imagined and then I feel a little better about all the other sucky ones.

Now I am not a particular fan of cashews to begin with.  Whenever I eat one I always think mehhh and tell myself I should just stick with almonds.   I have been doing a little dabbling here and there with raw and vegan recipes and apparently cashews are like cauliflowers and can be transformed into a whole host of amazing things.  So I decided to give my least favorite nut one more shot as the base for a pudding...and I am forever converted in a cashew lover now.

What you will need:
  • 2 cups of raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1 banana 
  • 1 tbs of honey
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla
  1. Add all of the above ingredients into a food processor (a blender will not work).
  2. Process until you have a smooth and creamy consistency.
  3. Place the pudding in the refrigerator and chill for about 30 minutes or so. 
  4. Enjoy! 
*Makes 3 servings

Both of my boys (and possibly me) licked their pudding bowls clean and Ronin said, "Moe Moe Moooooooe!" That would be more more more for those of who are unfamiliar with baby gibberish.   And the moment my husband walked in through the front door from work, I (nicely) shoved a spoonful of it in his face, I can't help that I am impatient :)  5 minutes later the pudding was history.  That's a good sign around here.  You need to make this.  No pressure...well maybe a little.

Looks delicious! Quick question. Is that a typo that the last two ingredients are both honey?
I am eager to make this and think I have all the stuff, but need that last little bit of clarification! :)

lady quixote- Ah yes typo! Sorry about that. I fixed it above :) Thanks for catching that for me.

Sounds so delicious! I've actually been making acai bowls with cashew milk and now have my lattes with vanilla cashew milk in the am and love it...even better than almond milk I think! Will have to try this soon!

My Trader Joe's just started selling Cashew Flour for cheap and I have a bag sitting here -was wondering what to try with it!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Deanna- awesome about the cashew flour but just a heads up cashew flour will not work for this. You will need raw cashews.

That sounds divine! I think I'll have to try that soon - as in tomorrow. hehe :)

Ooooh, yummy. I bet it would be good with coconut milk, too. I've made cashew "cream" like this before and it's deeeeelicious. I'm a cashew whore, though, so I'd pretty much eat them any old way. I'm addin' them to my grocery list to give it a whirl.

Made this tonight. YES!!!! To be honest I wasn't sure this was going to be as great as you said but it was! Thank you.

deanna said...

Good to know! Now what to do with that flour...=)

Boys + husband approval. That's all you can ask for!! :)

I bought almond milk today. Finally. I used it for smoothies. Um, YUM! And I've got a banana with your name on it. :)
