Now that high temperatures are finally back in the Northern hemisphere, the cold breakfasts that seemed so miserable a few months back are suddenly the perfect way to start the day.
I don't know about you, but I LOVE a bowl of fresh fruit and whipped cream. It makes for a great dessert, but it's certainly not the healthiest way to start your day.
Alas, here is my couldn't-be-any-easier recipe for a healthier cream that adds body, creaminess, and flavor to whatever you pair it with!
YIELDS: 1.5 cups
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup cold water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coconut extract
Combine all ingredients in food processor and mix until a smooth consistency is reached.
For best flavor and texture, refrigerate for at least 4 hours before consuming.
This tastes absolutely wonderful mixed with a cold bowl of fresh fruit!
