Vegan Tofu and Cashew Nut Whipped Cream

Vegan Tofu and Cashew Nut Whipped Cream a Great Alternative to Dairy Cream

This Vegan and cashew nut whipped cream is a tasty great a lternative for dairy whipped or the vegan whipped creams that are available to buy commercially.

I also use it for creamy main dishes that want for that extra creamy taste. It’s one of these essential condiments in my kitchen since I switched to the diet of the OMS program.
