Cashew Cream [V]

A delicious alternative to cream cheese frosting, and fully plantbased. No dairy products at all, so perfect for those who are lactose intolerant. I’m neither a vegan nor lactose intolerant, and I can still eat this by the spoonful, so don’t let the lack of dietary restrictions stop you.
