RECIPE: cashew cream breakfast parfait

Sometimes I just want to treat myself to something special, a lick-it-off-your-spoon kind of breakfast. Sometimes, though, I want the treat WITHOUT all the preparation. So on this particular morning I had just that. It was fabulous and oh-so good ...

For this quick fix I layered together juicy blueberries, cashew cream, chocolate granola, and fresh papaya.

Sweet Cashew Cream
1 cup cashews
1/2 cup coconut water
1 tablespoon maple syrup (or agave; non raw)
juice from 1/2 lemon
dash of vanilla
shake of sea salt

Combine everything in a high speed blender and blend until completely smooth. If you do not have a Vitamix you may want to soak your cashews and double your recipe to ensure a smooth cream. Once it's blended it's ready to eat!!

Layer everything (any fresh fruit, granola/seed mix) and eat! That's it, about 30 seconds to a delicious breakfast.

I like Go Raw Chocolate Granola and Superfoods Cereal Cacao Crunch  ... both can be found at Whole Foods. If you're up for it you can also make my granola, though it is a prepare-in-advance kind of breakfast. xo
