Ingredients for the Roasted Grapes

  • 4 cups grapes
  • 1/4 cup port wine
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar (honey can be used if not strictly vegan)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Pinch of salt

To make the Roasted Grapes

Preheat oven to 450F. Wash and dry the stemless grapes. Toss the grapes with the other ingredients. Place onto a sheet tray and roast for 10 minutes or until grapes are slightly charred and liquid is reduced to almost a syrup. Carefully place the grapes onto a plate to chill in the refrigerator. Save the remainder of the syrupy liquid separately and place into the refrigerator to chill as well.

Ingredients for the Vegan Lemon Cream

  • 2 cups raw cashews soaked in water for at least 2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator
  • 3/4 cup vegan milk (we used unsweetend oat milk)
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar (honey can be used if not strictly vegan)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted and room temperature)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons

To make the Vegan Lemon Cream

Start by rinsing the softened cashews with water. Then, place all ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness and acidity. Lastly, place the cream in the refrigerator to chill. Once chilled, place the cream into a pastry bag, then assemble in your preferred cup by alternating layers. Add your favorite granola for a little crunch if you prefer.
