Start by putting raw unsalted cashews in a bowl and cover completely with water let soak 6-10 hours in a cool place counters are fine, but not in the hot summer, so try the fridge. When they are done soaking, drain the water and put the cashews in a high powered blender, like a Vitamix with about 1/4 cup of water for each cup of cashews. To sweeten add about 1 Tbsp. of grade B maple syrup per cup of cashews and 1/2 Tbsp. of Gluten Free vanilla extract. Turn blender on and leave for about 2 minutes. Take out and store in a container in the fridge and use as you want, a little goes a long way and will totally become a staple when you want a cold healthy summer treat!
