Hello Ellen M.,
Freezing cashew cream is a great idea. Depending on how cold your freezer is, and in what vessel you store it, cashew cream should be fine for 1 - 3 months. I would freeze it in a glass container with a tight fitting lid of non-reactive material, leaving at least 2" of space, for expansion. The tighter the lid, the less freezer burn the cashew cream is likely to attract/form.
When you defrost it, it may separate a bit, but a hand blender, or even a whisk, will probably help it unify again.
