How to whip our cream

4 1/2 TBSP of any Butter, Margarine or Spread (straight from the fridge). We recommend Nuttlex but any will work. We would love it if you chose a vegan/plant based option. 
1 Bottle Good Boost Co. Cashew Cream (straight from the fridge)
2.5 tsp Icing Sugar (optional)
1 tsp Vanilla Paste (optional)

1. In a small bowl, using an electric beater, whip vegan butter on a high setting for 2-3 mins until very pale, soft and creamy. This is a very important step so no short cuts! It pays to scrap down the sides once or twice
2. In a slightly larger bowl add cream, icing sugar and vanilla, and whisk to combine.
3.  Add whipped vegan butter to cream, then beat on high until you reach the consistency you want. If the product separates, continue to whisk for a minute and it should come together. If it still hasn’t come together add one more tablespoon of whipped vegan butter and continue to whip.
4. Product is best used immediately, but can be stored for up to a few hours in a cool dark place covered. Do not store whipped cream in the fridge.

At Good Boost Co we are trying our best to make plant based alternatives that match their dairy counterparts as closely as possible, so that people moving to a plant based diet do not miss out on the things that they love. It is often very technically challenging to match dairy products with plant based alternatives, as is the case with our Cashew Cream. As such, please note that our whipped cashew cream will not look exactly like whipped dairy cream but it is as close as we have been able to get it.

Recipe - Cashew Cream Cheesecake

Ingredients:
• 200g Dates
• 130g Walnuts
• 50g Desiccated Coconut
• 3 tsp Cocoa
• Pinch Salt
• Juice on one large Lemon
• ½ tsp Lemon Rind
• 3 Tbls Sugar
• 2 tsp Cornflour
• 1 1/2 tsp Agar
• Pinch of Salt
• 70g Coconut Oil
• 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
• 100ml Coconut Cream
• 2 x bottles Good Boost Cashew Cream

Method:
1. To make the base combine the dates, walnuts, desiccated coconut, cocoa and a pinch of salt in a processor until the mix presses together without falling apart.
2. Grease a 20-25cm spring form cake tin. Press the base mix into the base of this so it makes an even and compact layer. Place this in the freezer while you make the remainder of the dessert
3. Pour the lemon juice and rind into a small saucepan – whisk in the sugar, cornflour, agar and salt. Place over a medium heat and stir continuously until the mix begins to thicken – then add the coconut oil. Keep mixing until the oil melts
4. Whisk the remaining ingredients into the lemon mix and then, stirring continuously, heat this until well combined and almost bubbling – approx. 3-5 minutes. Take this off the heat and set aside for 5 minutes.
5. Pour the cheesecake mix over the top of the base and place in the fridge to cool and set – it will require at least 4 hours to do so.
6. Once the cheesecake is set you can remove the springform cake tin and then top with whatever you wish. Fresh Berries, Jam, Chocolate Flakes or Lemon Curd all work well.

Method:
1. To make the macerated strawberries place the berries in a bowl, sprinkle the sugar and lemon juice over the strawberries and stir. Set aside for several hours in the fridge and stir every hour
2. For the panna cotta, pour the cream and milk into a saucepan, add the lemon peel, sugar, salt and agar and stir well to combine.

Recipe - PEACH & STICKY DATE TRIFLES

INGREDIENTS
For the Date Cake
• 2 Cups of dates
• 1 cup boiling water
• 1 tsp Baking Soda
• 1 Cup Flour
• 1 tsp Baking Powder
• ½ tsp each of ground ginger and cinnamon
• ¼ tsp salt
• 1 Cup Brown Sugar
• ½ Cup of Vegan Butter/Margarine (we like Nuttlex)

For The Caramel Sauce
• 130ml Good Boost Cashew Cream
• 2 Tbls Vegan Butter/Margarine
• Pinch salt
• 2/3 Cup Brown Sugar

For Assembled Trifle
• 1 ½ Bottles Good Boost Cashew Cream
• 1 ½ tsp Vanilla Essence or Paste
• 2 tsp Icing Sugar
• 2 Peaches – washed and cut into halved slices, skin on

METHOD
1. Start by making the cake. Turn oven to 180°C Bake. Grease or Spray a square cake tin (approx. 17cm x 17cm), or if you have only a round one and 20cm cake tin should be fine.
2. In a small bowl place the dates, baking soda and boiling water – leave this to stand for approx. 20 minutes – then puree or mash.
3. In a larger bowl place dry ingredients and whisk to combine them. Add to this the vegan margarine, and pureed date mix. Using an electric beater, beat this until it is smooth and creamy
4. Pour mix into cake tin and bake for 45 minutes – remove from oven and allow to cool.
5. Meanwhile make the caramel by combining all the ingredients for the caramel into a small pot and placing over a medium heat. Stir constantly until the caramel has come together and has just begun to simmer – remove from heat and set aside.
6. To assemble trifle (this can be done in one larger trifle dish, or in 6 smaller glasses),
• Turn the cake out and cut or break the cake into roughly 2cm chunks.
• You can use the cream in its thick, but still runny form – to do so just mix in the vanilla and icing sugar or whip it following our instructions of how to whip our cream.
• Make a layer at the bottle of the dish/glass of cake chucks, pour over a layer of Caramel Sauce, pour or pipe over a layer of cream, then place a scattering of peach chucks. Repeat the process to create another layer of each ingredient and finally top with a drizzle of caramel
