Blackberries LOVE...Peaches, Ginger, Cinnamon, and Yogurt a la Raw Vegan
I received some blackberries from my beautiful sister-in-law Parrish and was inspired to create! This simple dish tastes good because it follows the laws of flavour attraction as noted above. Pssst, learning whole food flavour combinations is the...Secret #4 for Delicious of Everyday Healthy.
While the yogurt is somewhat of a time investment it will last 3 -4 days in the fridge because the lemon acts as a preservative. While young Thai coconuts are not exactly affordable, you can get them for lower costs at Asian grocers or Superstore (where I bought mine :-) - and are a nice treat to celebrate the end of summer fruit.
1/2 cup cashews, soaked for 4 - 6 hours or overnight
1/2 cup coconut water from young Thai coconuts
1 cup coconut meat from young Thai coconuts
1 1/2 lemons (approx 1/4 cup juice)
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp dark maple syrup
2 -3 tbsp hemp seeds
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
dash sea salt
(1) Add all ingredients to a blender until smooth. Voila!!
To make Blackberry Peach Dessert...
Arrange blackberries and peaches with style on a plate or layer in a wine glass. Drizzle with cashew coconut yogurt, cinnamon, dark maple syrup.
Today, I spent the afternoon blackberry picking at my favourite spot on Jericho beach in Vancouver, BC. While picking your own food is a time investment, it is very relaxing and can help to relieve stress. Don't forget to pick lots and freeze the rest
