For the Cashew Cream

  • 175 g cashews unsalted

For the Rest

  • 1 litre oat milk I use Oatly, the barista version
  • 1 tsp cinnamon ground
  • 5 rasps nutmeg whole
  • 1 pc star anise
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 pc clove
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/16 tsp xanthan gum optional
  • dark spiced rum to taste, optional


  • Soak the cashew creams in cold water for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight a container with a lid in the fridge.
  • Heat the oat milk in a saucepan with everything except for the xanthan gum. Heat until steam starts to release from the milk - just under a boil. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • When the milk has cooled slightly transfer to a jug and refrigerate for 2 hours or until completely chilled.
  • Strain the infused oat milk with a fine mesh strainer.
  • Drain the water from the soaked cashews and discard. Blend the cashews with a ladle or two of the infused oat milk until smooth.
