Here’s how I did the apple crisp. Put 1 1/2 cups raw cashews in the vitamix and added enough maple syrup to blend it smooth and creamy, but not runny. I’d start with 3/4 a cup and then add more if needed. Also add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp sea salt. This mixture alone makes a very yummy fruit dip and I have to credit Apryl Jensen for telling me how to make it. Put this mixture into a seperate bowl because you will have more then enough for two batches of crisp, maybe three. Chop six apples, (I used Gala) and about a cup of walnuts and put them in a mixing bowl. Scoop on a couple spoonfuls of cream, sprinkle on some cinnamon and nutmeg, maybe a 1/2 tsp of each. Stir, adjust to taste as needed, and there you go.
