Hope everyone has had a wonderful week!
It’s been HOT in Kansas City this week but I can’t say that I mind … I’d always much rather be hot than cold. That being said … I’m all about cold drinks and treats during the dog days of summer. Therefore, today on Lesley Lifting Life we’re featuring smoothies and cashew ice cream!
Raw Cashew Ice Cream
-- 1 C raw cashews
-- 1 1/2 C water
-- 1/3 C raw agave nectar
-- pinch of salt
-- 1 vanilla bean
-- 1-2 TB coconut oil
- Throw it all in a blender and let it form a smooth liquid. Place the liquid in ice cream maker, and let it do it’s thing until it’s reached your favorite consistency.
We topped ours with raw chocolate syrup that Erik made, alongside a slice of raw raspberry pie and some more raw chocolate. Perfect dessert trio, yum!!
Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Smoothies have been an essential part of my complete, balanced
breakfast summer, especially when it’s over 100 degrees!
Today’s smoothie consisted of:
- 1 C (ish) frozen strawberries
- 1 banana
- A squirt of agave
- Splash of water
- Ice, to preference
Simple, delicious, and refreshing!
What’s your favorite smoothie mixture??
