Nectarines with Cashew Cream

September 24, 2013

A fantastic combination of tangy nectarines and apple juice with sweet, rich cashew cream.

Serves 4



  1. Wash the nectarines and cut in half.
  2. Place in a small pan and pour enough apple juice to create a 1cm high layer in the pan. Now bring to the boil. 
  3. Turn the heat down and simmer covered with a lid until soft. You can check the softness of the nectarines with a skewer. 
  4. Pour the rice syrup over the nectarines and cook for 1 minute longer. 
  5. Make the cashew cream by combining the cashew nut butter, silken tofu & vanilla. You can add rice syrup to the cashew cream if you would like it sweeter. 
  6. Serve the nectarines in their syrup, with the cashew cream on top.
