2 ½ cups Navitas Organcis Raw Cashews, soaked in water for at least 3 hours

To make the filling, blend Cashews, plant-based milk, coconut oil, Matcha, maple syrup and vanilla in blender until smooth. If mix is too dry, add a few additional drops of plant-based milk to achieve a creamy consistency.
