This can be used as a mayonnaise, a base for desserts, a dressing for salads or cream dip for veggie sticks or for strawberries or other fruit..whatever you desire. It’s so versatile and you can doctor it up however you like. I made this little concoction because I wanted to use up the rest of my fresh basil. It’s quick and easy and the combination of sweet and salty along with its creaminess is really nice. Raw cashews are naturally sweet and so is fresh basil, but I think that soaking the cashews might bring out their sweetness even further. I didn’t soak them this time and they were still sweet and blended very easily to a very creamy consistency.
Plain philly cream cheese. This recipe is a quick and easy, dreamy cream cheesy. Use it in sushi! Spread it on raw bread, tortillas, bagels, muffins, treats! How about a yummy red pepper relish mixed with cream cheese for a suculent chip dip! Lather up a long celery stalk and chomp chomp chomp! You apple slices might want to take a double dip trip! You can also use this as a base start for raw cheesecake filling, all you’d need to add is some vanilla and agave or honey…Go wild why don’t you?! I created this to go in my “Mock Philly Roll”

Been looking for a nut/seed free ice cream recipe for a while. Got the idea from a restaurant, Bonobo’s. This is just the base. Options are endless what you can add to make other flavors. The banana surprisingly gives it a creamy texture, but not an overly dominating flavor.
