Vegan creams with Nuez de la India
Have you tried this delicious alternative to cow's cream? This easy-to-prepare vegetable option has won our hearts; either in our chilaquiles, with strawberries, or in any Mexican dish that has cream, it is an ideal topping.
In these times we are all very aware that we must lead a healthy life, starting with what we eat, because although we would love to enjoy our favorite foods without consequences or regrets, these foods are usually the least healthy .
Cream is no exception, as it goes well with all kinds of dishes and desserts, but we cannot ignore the amount of fat it contains, especially the amount that we usually use to accompany these dishes. And it is that although with the existence of tools with the air fryer, the use of oils has become less, it is not the same to enjoy some sopecitos or some chilaquiles without cream than with a healthy version of it.
The simplest recipe
Normally they are prepared with some seed or nut; in this case, we bring you a version that you can prepare with almonds or indian nuts, and the result will be a soft cream, with only four basic ingredients and that will become in one of your favorite ingredients.
If you want to enjoy traditional Mexican dishes in a healthy way and even impress your family with the flavor of this recipe, we invite you to prepare it:
