You’ve tried our Cashewmilk Frozen Dessert and our Cashewmilk Beverage. Now, try their chilly lovechild made with homemade toasted maple pecans.


To Make the Maple Pecans:

  1. Heat the buttery spread or oil in a pan over medium heat. Stir in the pecans and salt and saute for about 2 minutes or until just lightly golden and fragrant.
  2. Add the maple syrup, it will sizzle, and quickly stir to coat the pecans. Continue to stir and cook for about 2 minutes – they should appear quite sticky, with most of the maple clinging to the pecans, but not burnt.
  3. Pour the pecans out onto a silicone baking mat or parchment paper, and let cool 5 minutes. Break them up into bits once cool enough to handle, and let cool completely.
  4. Run a little hot water around the outside of the frozen dessert to loosen. Open and press the bottom to plop it out onto a cutting board. Cut in half and then quarters – it just helps blending to use smaller chunks.

To Make the Milkshake:

  1. Place the frozen dessert chunks and 1 cup milk beverage in your blender and puree until smooth, adding more milk beverage as needed to get the right consistency (I usually use about 1¼ cups).
  2. Add ¼ cup of the cooled maple pecans, and pulse the blender a few times to break them up and disperse.
  3. Pour the mixture into 3 glasses and top each with a small handful of the remaining maple pecans.
