Confession time. The only reason I usually make cakes, cookies, and cupcakes, is to eat the batter. Sometimes I make the batter, and do not even end up baking anything. This lovely creation allows me to have my cake batter, and eat it too.
Soaked cashews are so versatile! They can make cream ‘cheese’, amazing creamy desserts, and can take on whatever flavor you want to give them. You can make this bowl your own in oh so many ways. I like to top with fruit or a chocolate drizzle.
Dr Jockers Comments:
Cashews are my favorite nut because they are so creamy and delicious. This recipe is awesome and can be used in a variety of ways!
I will tell you that many individuals, like myself, do not do great on cashews. I try to hold my indulgence to 1-2x per month and it seems to work well…which means I enjoy them without feeling like I am having a food sensitivity inflammatory reaction.
This recipe combines some very good fats in the coconut milk which provides medium-chain fatty acids that help the body to burn fat and improve mental clarity. The cinnamon helps to improve blood glucose levels by enhancing insulin sensitivity.
I like to make this recipe ketogenic by using stevia or monk fruit to taste (5-10 drops), or just using the bone broth protein banana flavor instead! The flavor of the bone broth banana is AWESOME and it has the stevia needed to sweeten up this recipe and make it really enjoyable.
Not to mention that bone broth protein is one of the best things on the planet for joints, skin, gut health and the immune system. Try this recipe out and I know you will enjoy it!
