Raw Healthy Cranberry Fluff

Our friend Louise posted this cranberry fluff dessert from http://realhousemoms.com/cranberry-fluff/
We have come up with a way to make it healthier.

12 ounce fresh cranberries
3/4 cup medjool dates
1 cup fresh pineapple
2 cups apples, diced
1 cup sliced grapes
1 cup chopped "crispy" nuts *

Directions: process in the food processor

Fold in the entire cashew whipping cream recipe below

Cashew whipping cream
1 cup soaked cashews (soak ~ 6 hours, drain, rinse, drain)
6-8 soft medjool dates, pitted
3/4 cup of water
1 tsp vanilla or a couple of inches of vanilla bean

Place ingredients in a high speed blender. Blend until smooth.

* we soak all of our nuts and seeds prior to using them. Many we also dehydrate and store. There are many sites that explain this method but this one is the most straight-forward http://www.mommypotamus.com/how-to-soak-and-dehydrate-nuts-the-nourishing-traditions-way/
