Peaches, peaches, peaches…..YUM!!! I have enjoyed this breakfast every morning this week. I add a splash of lemon juice because cashews are so high in iron. The citrus has acid and vitamin C which helps increase absorption of the iron. This cream is so easy, versatile and nutrient dense. Enjoy.
1 cup raw, whole cashew
1/3 c water
1/4 vanilla bean, scrapped
1/8 tsp almond extract
1 Tbl maple syrup
1/2 tsp salt
Splash of lemon juice
1) Cove the cashews with water. Let soak fro 3-24 hours.
2) Strain water. Add the 1/3 c water and remaining ingredients into a blender or even better a vita-mix until silky smooth. NOTE: The vita-mix will make a better product. If using a Cuisinart or blender, scrap the edges down and strain if you want it to be perfectly smooth.
3) Wash and slice the peach. Add a spoonful of the cashew cream. Top with the granola of your choosing.
