Hello Wednesday!

9 Mar

Woke up this morning to 32 degrees, but I guess that’s better than 12 degrees right?  Of course an ice cold smoothie is just what I need on an ice cold [raw] day!! (:

Cashew Cream and Banana Milkshake

Serves 1

1/2-3/4 cup raw almond milk, depending on how thick or thin you like it

2 Tbsp. WHV Raw Cinnamon Cashew Spread (recipe follows)

1 tsp. shredded and dried coconut, unsweetened

3/4 cup frozen banana

4 ice cubes


Put all into a Vita-mix and let that baby do it’s job!!  Pour into a nice big glass and enjoy!  Spring’s almost here I swear…

Have you ever seen a hummingbird moth??

I took this picture and let me tell you, it does this thing no justice!  It was about the size of my fist!

Raw Cinnamon Cashew Spread

Yields about 2 1/2 cups

1/3 cup chia seeds

2 1/3 cups raw cashews, soaked for about 30 minutes

3 tsp. cinnamon

4 dates

2/3 cups water

2 Tbsp. hemp oil

3/4 cup raw almond milk


In a Vita-mix or food processor, grind the chia seeds into a powder.

Add the rest of the ingredients, according to your manufacturers instructions, and blend, stirring frequently and being careful not to overheat your machine.
