Coconut Cream | Raederle's Raw Recipe

Love cream-covered desserts? Then you'll love this raw coconut cream.

Coconut Cream

Healthy and delicious alternative to dairy cream
  • 1 Thai coconut's meat (also known as young coconut meat)
  • ¼ cup young coconut juice (also know as "coconut water")
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup raw orange juice
  • 1 cup soaked cashews, drained, rinsed (discard soak water)
  • ¼ cup water (start with two tablespoons and adjust as needed)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla powder

Blend all ingredients in your food processor.

About The Ingredients

  • The coconut meat of a young coconut (also known as a Thai coconut or green coconut) gives it a thick but silky texture.
  • The coconut juice adds mild sweetness. It's rich in potassium (more so than bananas!), and great for hydration.
  • The coconut oil makes this a very slick and smooth cream-like substance. Put the coconut oil into a small bowl or glass, and then put that bowl into a larger bowl with hot water in it to melt the oil.
  • The raw orange juice adds sweetness and allows the mixture to hold a little air, making it fluffier.
  • Soaked cashews, like macadamia nuts and pine nuts, become very creamy after being soaked and blended. I use cashews because they are less expensive than macadamia nuts or pine nuts. Also, pine nuts have a terrible calcium to phosphorous ratio.
  • The vanilla adds richness to the flavor.

What is coconut cream good on?

Oh... Just about everything (that is sweet and fruity).
  • Granola and grapes
  • Peaches, pies and plums
  • Apples and apricots

When reading, the most incredible things I've ever learned came from stories. Stories are more memorable. They create images and time-lines in our minds. They give us all the background information that lead up to a great moment, a great realization, a great break-through.
In reality, we only truly grasp ("grok") something through personal experience. We can not add to our experience through reading dry data. But we really can and do add to our experience with stories. The more detailed, authentic, and dynamic the story, the more there is for us to learn from it. The more it resonates with us and touches us, the more we retain what we've learned.
It is because of this that I'm writing my own life as a series of autobiographical novels.
