Jump to Recipe

Vegan fruit salad recipe with cashew cream – one of my favorite way of having Fruit salad is with cream. we call it Fruit cream.

Here the fruits are mixed with whipped cream which is sweetened with sugar or honey.

Since I am try making vegan food at times, I have substituted regular cream with cashew cream in this recipe. And lo made a Vegan Fruit salad with cashew cream.

Now before you ask me What is cashew cream… I will explain what it is. Cashew cream is smoothly blended and whipped cashew. Well it not cashew paste.

Here the cashews are kept soaking in the refrigerator and then blended with some chilled water to a smooth creamy texture. I have mentioned below in the recipe details on how to make the cashew cream.

You won’t miss the regular cream in this vegan fruit salad. this was one of the best fruit salads I have had. The cashew cream mellowed the different tastes and flavors so beautifully in this nutritious and healthy dessert.

I used seasonal Indian fruits like – pineapple, apple, musk melon, chickoo, papaya and banana. You can make the fruit salad with the fruits available in your country or region.
