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 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 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. you can also check this easy to prepare fruit salad recipe made with tropical fruits.

  1. excellent recipe for making cashew cream though i have yet to try.

    • thanks savita

  2. Hi Dassana! Thanks for stopping by my blog. The cashew cream here sounds lovely!

  3. I don’t know how I missed this recipe in your blog, may be my weekend break to countryside and brought back illness from there.

    I am fasting too in Navratri (shravan maas too), one time meal. Your Navratri recipes will be very handy for fasting as I fast on Monday and Thursday every week. I’ll try this recipe probably on weekend with some minor changes and let you know how it goes.

    BTW Wish you very happy Navaratri to you and your family.

    • thanks and wish you too a happy navratri. let me know how the recipe turns out.

  4. i love the simplicity of this salad. and it looks so bright and cheerful

  5. Liked the second pic and cashew cream sounds delish 🙂 I am hungry!

  6. Hi Dassana, went through your recipe of”Fruit Salad With Cashew Cream’ and this recipe sounds delicious & lip smacking.But, don’t you feel that cashew is full of calories and so obese & overweight people ,people having arthritis cannot have this .Can hung curd be used in place of cashew cream?

    • cashew cream has calories so obviously people having the conditions you mentioned cannot have this salad. but it is good for lean people like me 🙂
      plus also good for vegans. you can use hung curd as well as low fat cream instead of cashew cream.

    • cashews have good fats which do not convert into cholestrol. whereas milk products, curd etc has fat that instantly converts to cholestrol and fat that is stored in the body. Obesity esp in lacto vegetarians is more because of dairy rather than nuts.

      • thanks richa for this info. i was not aware of this one.

  7. Rich and delicious salad!

  8. I can totally imagine this begin so tasty! I have filled cookies with cashew cream and it turns out amazing! Have to try this asap 🙂

  9. Cashews happen to be my favorite nuts:) This fruit cream will be a favorite here for sure.

  10. That is the most beautiful looking fruit cream I have seen in a long time! Love the vegan part. 🙂

  11. That cashew cream sounds very interesting. I imagine it tastes quite nice and nutty.

  12. Hi Dassana,
    This is really a very healthy twist on the regular fruit salad served with dairy cream. Gorgeous clicks!
