Macadamia-Vanilla Frosting

| | Makes 1 cup 

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup macadamia nuts, soaked in ½ cup water for 15 to 30 minutes
  • 6 medjool dates, pitted and diced, soaked in ½ cup water for 15 to 30 minutes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

This frosting has a somewhat maple flavor to it. You can use it right after making it, or if you want to use a cake decorating tip (like in the top photo), put the frosting in the refrigerator for 30 minutes first.

Instructions:

1. Drain the soaked nuts and discard the water.

2. Add all ingredients (the nuts, dates with their soak water, and vanilla) to a blender, and purée until smooth and even in color.

3. Add a little more water as needed, to keep the blender moving if the mixture gets too thick.
