Makes one small bowl


200g coconut milk
½ cup cashews
6 drops vanilla essence or seeds of one vanilla pod
2 heaped teaspoons matcha powder
Pinch mineral rich salt


Put all ingredients into a high-speed blender (I use a vitamix S30) and process until you have a thick smooth consistency. You will need to use the tamper and stop and scrape also between blitzing.

Keep in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Use to top pancakes, with seasonal fruit or, if you keep it really chilled, as a sugar free ice-cream alternative.
