With all sorts of fruits and berries in season, it’s a time of year when we’ve often found ourselves looking for new recipes to take advantage of a bountiful summer harvest. Looking for a break from pies and other baked goodies, we decided to try out a rich vanilla cream to complement a variety of fresh fruit.

After making it once, we wondered where it had been all our lives.

The fresh vanilla bean is the star of the show in this elegant vegan topping. There’s no added sugar, because we found it wasn’t needed! The dates in the cream provide plenty of sweetness, and a rich, caramel-like aftertaste. Consider carefully before making this recipe, because this stuff is addictive! One taste, and you’ll want it on every fruit in sight.
