To combine berries with vanilla flavoured things is such an easy way to create delicious treats! I hadn’t tried a warm version of it yet and decided to try in a different way than usual – with an oven.
And yes, this works very well! The smell of the hot berries is so mouth-watering! And it doesn’t matter if you eat while still warm or cold – this combination is awesome!
For 2 portions you’ll need:
1/2 cup (70g) cashews (soaked in filtered water for at least 6 hours and then drained)
1/4 cup (35g) dates
1 cup of nut-milk (best freshly home-made)
2 teaspoon vanilla paste
1 heaped tablespoon (10g) corn starch
1 pinch salt
2 handful of berries
It’s best to soak the dates a bit in the nut-milk before blending.
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Then add all the other ingredients (except the berries) and blend to a fine cream.
Fill into oven-proof small bowls.
Carefully place the berries on top. I have used frozen berries so I’m not sure if fresh berries would require different cooking times or even some protection from burning. I will report on that once the new berries are ready for picking
Place the bowls on a tray into the oven and bake at 180°C for approx. 20 minutes.
