Is there a way to get around the homogenization step? For instance, if I start with roasted cashews to begin with, can I just soak those to cheat a bit. I'm not sure why its consequential since it's frozen anyway. Anyone?

I'm not for sure. I soak the cashews and then run them through my samson juicer, using the nut butter blank plate. But before I had one of those juicers I use to just run them in my blender tell smooth.......:)

I can't believe that's raw! Definitely going to give it a try! When you say put the cashews in the juicer to create a butter, do you mean just chucking them in after they have been soaked? We have a Soyabella to make nut milks and what is leftover from the cashews after making the milk, could that be used in this recipe to make the butter?

Thanks angie, that is correct about the maple syrup, and yes, I have used vanilla extract when I did not have vanilla bean, and then I use 1tsp. :) Robin :)

qdee, it looks like the amounts of maple syrup are listed with the other ingredients in each layer - the amount under the strawberries seems to go in the red layer.

This looks sooooo GOOD!!!!

To lilmzmoyer@yahoo.com, which amount of maple syrup goes with the white layer and which one goes with the red layer?

rawclaire- it looks like there is liquid in the vanilla part anyway, so however much liquid you get from the extract you could subtract it from the water measurement. (just a thought)

I do think the vanilla bean could be substituted with vanilla extract, shouldn't matter that much! :)

angie - date paste is simply dates that have been pureed in a food processor or blender to a paste.

I think as a substitute for walnuts, you could use a combination of almonds and pecans. They together seem to work well in place of walnuts. I'm sure your son is gonna love this recipe!

Great job creating this lilmzmoyer!
