Strawberries and cream the vegan way for Wimbledon

3 Jul 2017 |

 It's the first day of Wimbledon so we're looking to Green Kitchen Stories for a vegan alternative to the classic strawberries and cream.


Strawberry Cashew Milk

This lush and creamy strawberry ‘milkshake’ is made from soaked cashew nuts. We add dates as a natural sweetener, but the real flavour comes from the strawberries. Depending on how ripe and sweet your strawberries are, you might like to deduct or add a date or two. When served in small bottles, this milk is ideal for a kids’ birthday party. It would also be delicious served with a bowl of porridge or muesli.

Makes 1 Litre | 1 ¾ oints / 4 cups

150 g (5 oz/1 cup) raw cashew nuts (plus filtered water for soaking)

750 ml (25 fl oz/3 cups) filtered water

225 g (8 oz/1½ cups) fresh ripe strawberries, tops removed (or frozen, thawed) (organic if possible)

4–6 soft dates, pitted

¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
