  • 1 cup raw cashews organic if possible
  • cup water filtered
  • 2 tsp lemon juice fresh
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar organic if possible
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract real vanilla if you can not flavoring
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon tapioca starch
  • 12 strawberries fresh and ripe


  • Boil cashews in filtered water for 10 minutes.
  • Rinse and strain the cashews.
  • Combine the cashews and the rest of the ingredients in a high-powered blender of food processor and mix on high for 5 minutes or more until very creamy.
  • Let the cream refrigerate in a bowl, zip lock or pastry back for at least 3 hours.
  • Evenly slice the very tips off the strawberries so that they can stand upright.
  • Cut the stemmed tops off evenly and scoop out the middle of the strawberries with a straw or carefully with the tip of a knife.
  • Fill each strawberry with cream once it has set for 3+ hours (see notes).
  • Arrange the strawberries as you wish and then sprinkle the tops with lemon zest, fresh mint or nothing at all.


I like to use a piping bag with a fancy tip to fill the strawberries. You can also just put the cream in a zip lock, cut off the corner and squeeze the cream into each strawberry for an easy, budget-friendly trick.
