Ooh this is decadent! The cashew cream takes on a nice sweetness and is a filling addition to the fruit. The fruit choices are endless (strawberries, kiwi, oranges, pineapple). Pick your favourite. Fresh fruit is a natural fertility booster and filled with antioxidants.
Fruit with Vanilla Cashew Cream
yield: 2 servings
prep: 15 minutes, plus 4 hours soaking time
1 cup cashews (raw and unsalted)
1⁄4 cup + 1 Tbsp coconut milk
1⁄2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut 1/2 cup raspberries
1⁄2 cup blackberries
In a small bowl soak cashews in purified water (enough water to cover the cashews)
Set aside bowl and cover.
Let stand for at least 4 hours or overnight is best
Discard soaking water from cashews and rinse
In high speed blender combine until smooth cashews, coconut milk, cinnamon, vanilla
in small serving bowls layer blueberries and raspberries

So you've read the recipe and are feeling inspired. Time to take action. Start soaking your cashews tonight and you can whip this up tomorrow morning. Small steps each day amount to huge change over time.
