Is there non-dairy heavy cream, half and half, etc.? Or another way to replace it in a recipe?

I think there is a Silk half and half on the market but...super easy and much cheaper, soak some "raw" cashews in water for a few hours, rinse, and then blend with water a little at a time until you get the consistency you want. I'm not sure how this stands up in say a cup of coffee, but it works great in recipes.
