Compote Ingredients:

  • ½ cup dried apricots
  • ¼ cup pitted prunes
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1 pear, sliced
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup apple juice


Cashew Vanilla Nut Cream Ingredients:

  • ½ cup raw, unsalted cashews
  • 2 dates, pitted and soaked
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Water (to desired consistency)


Combine apricots, prunes, apple, pear, cinnamon stick, nutmeg and juice in a medium sized pan. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat, and simmer, covered, for 20-30 minutes, until all fruit is soft. Remove cinnamon stick.

Grind nuts into a fine meal in a small grinder or blender. Put ground cashews, dates, and vanilla in the blender. With blender running, add a little water at a time until you have a thick creamy consistency. Put the compote in serving bowls and top with Vanilla Nut Cream.
