As you know, I’m in a baking phrensy lately and I SO want to make donuts for you but first wanted to tell you about an almost guilt-free icing that I usually prepare for whenever I need to ice something.
This is going to be quick so here it goes:
2 cups of cashews.
4 tbsp of maple syrup (please use real maple!).
1 pinch of salt.
4 tbsp of water.
Soak your cashews. There’s two ways to do it:
Overnight: put the cashews in a small glass container, cover them up with water, soak them overnight and drain before using.
Hot water: put the cashews in a small glass container and cover them up with boiled water, soak for 1 hour and drain before using.
Add your soaked cashews to a blender along with the rest of the ingredients. Keep blending until you get a creamy texture.
You can store this icing in the fridge for up to 5 days and goes great with donuts or my banana bread! (click here to get the recipe).
You can also add some chocolate powder! You’ll love it!
