This is a lovely sweet treat for a really hot night.
1/4 cup raw cashews
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup plain, unsweetened nondairy milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
8 dates, soaked in water
10 frozen organic strawberries
About 10 ice cubes (optional)
In a high-powered blender combine the cashews, vanilla, nondairy milk and cocoa powder until creamy. Add in the dates, then the strawberries and ice and blend well. Serve immediately. Makes 1-2 servings.
If you don’t have a high-powered blender, that’s okay! You will just need to add enough milk or water to get the ingredients to blend in your appliance. Instead of a soft serve dessert, you’ll make a shake, but it will be just as delicious.
