Peachy Keen Delight

When your sweet tooth cries for something rich and decadent, think about a thick, cool, creamy, fruit laden smoothie. This isn't a low calorie treat. But it's chock full of fresh, whole foods, nutrient rich and soul satisfying.

Start with a cashew cream base: 1/4 cup cashews and one cup of filtered water, blended until smooth. Then add 2 - 3 pitted and chopped peaches, 1-2 frozen bananas and blend away. The drink can be adapted to other stone fruit or berries - and of course, can be made with almond milk for a lighter version. The cashew cream was a special treat and actually served as lunch one day, keeping the hunger wolf completely at bay until dinner time.
