Quick & Healthy Recipes: Easy Peezy (Healthy!) Sweet “Cream”

Posted Nov 13 2009 10:00pm

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

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 2 or 3 pitted dates
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract

DIRECTIONS:

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!
