Broiled Peaches and Plums with Vegan Cinnamon Cashew Cream

Vegan Cinnamon Cashew Cream with Broiled Peaches and Plums – Healthy, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Oil-Free, Plant-Based Recipe

Medium  |  Servings: 8|  Ready In: 5 minutes + soaking overnight |  Yield: 1 cup Cashew Cream

Cashews are soaked overnight and pureed with dates and cinnamon for a creamy, dairy-free dessert sauce.  This pairs well with the charred flavor from broiled stone fruit like peaches and plums.  Serve this healthy, plant-based recipe for a light, summer treat.  Make extra vegan cashew cream for using over other baked fruits or even Banana I-Scream!


How It’s Done:

To soak the Cashews:  Cover the cashews with a couple of inches of water and soak overnight (or at least 6 hours) in the fridge.

To Broil the Stone Fruit: Preheat your oven to Broiler setting, “Hi”.  Remove the pits of the fruit and cut into large wedges. Place the fruit, cut-side-up, on a baking sheet. Place in the oven, on the top rack, right under the broiler. Broil for 5-6 minutes.

To make the Cinnamon Cashew Cream: While the fruit broils, drain and rinse the soaked cashews.
Place the cashews into a high-speed blender. Add the dates, cinnamon, vanilla, and 1/2 cup fresh water.   Puree for 1-2 minutes, until completely smooth.

To finish the dish: When the fruit is lightly charred, remove from the broiler.

Plate the fruit and drizzle with Cashew Cinnamon Cream. Serve immediately.

Chef Katie’s Tips:

Other Flavor Variations:  This Cashew Cream is a dairy-free base for experimenting with different flavors. You can swap out the cinnamon for ginger, cardamom, or pumpkin pie spice.

Freezer-Friendly:  The Cashew Cream freezes well so a double-batch is a good idea.

  • May I sub some dried prunes for 1/2 the dates? Would the final product be sweet enough with that sub? Thank you.

    • Yes, you can definitely sub dried prunes. You may to use a few more prunes (2-4), depending on your tastes. I also love using dried mango and raisins for sweetness.
