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?

It is my pleasure to bring you this ad-free, completely authentic and original website. This entire site is a one-woman operation. I, Raederle, do the HTML coding, the writing, the photography, the artwork and more. Then you come along, view my work and make it all worth while.
Except that sometimes your viewership isn't enough. Sometimes a gal has got to get paid. So now I've set it up so that you can contribute a small monthly sum (as little as $1 a month) in exchange for getting exclusive, exciting, bonus content from me.
Patrons give me something priceless for a small price-tag: appreciation. Ever heard of the five love languages? It took me a while to realize this, but there is a different form of "gifts" as a love language, and it is called financial support. That's right – it makes me feel loved. I hope that isn't too much honesty for you, because my patrons read more personal admissions from me than that!
