Frozen Berries and Pink Cashew Cream | Nutrition Stripped

I’m thinking about spring. I know it’s just the start of March and technically we have a bit to go, but I’m all about spring right now and all the exciting things I have in the works to share, but also just the changing of seasons. Whenever I think of warmer months, I instantly thinking of cooling foods and the wide varieties of fruits. Frozen Berries and Pink Cashew Cream may be the most simple dessert, I’ve shared since the BanaNO Cream ice cream yet is a bit more special feeling. It’s loaded with fiber and antioxidants from my three favorite berries including raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries and is topped with a raw vegan sweet cream sauce made from cashew nuts, raspberries, coconut, and a pinch of lemon.

I truly live seasonally as much as possible, in tune with the way the sun rises and falls which inevitably changes my sleep patterns and how long my work days are and how often I play outside. Connecting my mind and body is one thing, but also connecting to nature opens up an entire new door of inspiration and rejuvenation. Winter is always a time where I naturally go into “hibernation”, I don’t go out as often, I find myself aching to be cozy at all hours of the day, working hard on projects, writing, and being more intentional with work and my personal practices. Spring is like a gentle reminder that there’s far more outside the world I need to start waking up to and getting more in tune with- literally as plants and the sun is blossoming more, I try to open up for new projects, new adventures, and go with the flow of opportunities that are presented. Spring is also an incredibly inspirational time, it’s the earths way of literally shaking off the old and turning over a new leaf, literally!

Just as spring is gently waking up so are more varieties of fruits and vegetables, and as much as I wish all berries like raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries are in season, they aren’t here in Nashville until the summer! Hence why I’m using frozen organic berry varieties, it’s my way of getting the berries I’m craving from summer, in the spring….err should I say late winter still? Either way frozen berries, even frozen organic berries, are incredibly affordable and available to most of us year round. I’ve said it and I’ll say it again and again, healthy eating and living a whole foods lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated nor does it have to cost a fortune (read here for my healthy eating on a budget tips). This recipe truly is the epitome of that, it takes less than 10 minutes to make, less than 8 ingredients, and can be enjoyed anytime of year.

Berry breakdown.

I love the combination of tart, low sugar raspberries with the sweet strawberries and blueberries, but feel free to use any combination of berries you enjoy. Cherries and blackberries are always a nice addition as well. No matter what berry you choose to use, know that across the board berries have similar characteristics when it comes down to their nutrient profile. All contain heaps of antioxidants, although blueberries and goji berries are at the top, contain fiber, are hydrating, and contain simple carbohydrates (which you can read more up on carbohydrates here and here, don’t be afraid of carbs!).

Raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries all three have several nutrients in common; first, they’re all incredibly fiber rich (especially raspberries), contain vitamin C, K, minerals such as magnesium, manganese, copper and potassium. The antioxidants, phytonutrients, and anti-inflammatory compounds found in these berries, and others, help decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, some cancers, general inflammation in the body, digestive issues, eye health, brain and mental function, and stabilize blood sugars. Not only are all three of these berries a total beauty and skin food, they’re incredibly satisfying especially if you have a sweet tooth.

To serve, I love this recipe as a quick breakfast, mid-morning snack, or dessert with a bit of drizzled honey, a dash of cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt. Don’t be afraid of adding sea salt to sweet things, it only enhances the flavors, but don’t go overboard it’s just a touch! Another idea, add a bit of your favorite dark chocolate by grating it or chopping very finely to create thin pieces of chocolate, so good!

  • sabel

    I just made this!! So yuuummmy 🙂 thanks for the recipe.

  • Whitney Gore

    Do you need to soak the cashews before blending? Does the cream refrigerate well? So excited to make this!

  • Donna

    This looks fantastic….Any thoughts about mixing the frozen berries WITH the cashew cream in the hope of obtaining a pink soft-serve?! Very pretty….berry pretty!

    • Yes, totally can do that, but you’d have to enjoy it right away- when frozen berries start to thaw it may get a bit watery when mixing with the cashew cream 😉

  • Chrissy Stephens

    Hi McKel! I love your website! Can you substitute cashew butter for cashews? I have some I am trying to use up. What do you think? Thanks!!

  • Stacey masters

    Sounds very good I will have to try. I like these kind of recipies because I am lactose intolerant.

  • Gia

    When I’m measuring, is it one cup before I soak them, or one cup after they have been soaked?

  • Claire

    This is a fantastic recipe! It’s the perfect start to the day. It makes me feel so happy on the inside and gives me heaps of energy for the crazy day to come. Love it!!

    Thanks McKel!

  • Carlie

    Finally made this tonight and it was amazing! I subbed fresh tangelo juice for lemon and added a bit of coco powder. Divine! Thanks for the recipe.

  • Melissa

    Hey – I just made this. Nice flavor and all – I might even cut back on the sweetener a bit, I’m surprised! I do have some follow up questions, however. What’s the texture supposed to really be like after the blending? Mine is a bit grainy. Still nice to enjoy over berries but the word cream makes me think it should be smoother. Was I supposed to use FRESH unsweetened shredded coconut maybe?

    • The pink cashew cream will be smooth if using a high-speed blender and with all my recipes, always adjust to taste meaning you can cut back on seasonings or honey/natural sweeteners if need be. Always use unsweetened coconut, milks, etc.!

  • anya clark

    Do you need to use a really high speed blender to make the cream smooth, for example a vitamix???

  • Jackie

    Can I substitute another milk for the hemp? Can’t get it here.
    Thanks

    • McKel Hill

      This recipe uses cashew milk, but you can use any non-dairy milk you enjoy! Coconut milk is lovely too xxM

  • Daesha

    Absolutely delicious! My absolute favorite vegan snack!

    • McKel Hill

      So happy you enjoy it Daesha!
