Ingredients
  

  • 100 g cashew
  • 100 g coconut yogurt
  • 150 g Peach
  • 20 g honey
  • 20 g coconut oil
  • Decorate: almond flakes, peppermint leaves, raspberry, etc

Instructions
 

  • Start with soaking the cashews overnight. This step will not only soften the cashews, but also reduce the phytates content. Phytates are natural components in nuts, seeds, legumes and can create digestive problems and decrease nutrient absorption. Throw away the soaking water and rinse them again with fresh water before mixing with the rest of the ingredients.
    The quick alternative is to soak them in hot water for 30 minutes.
  • Add all ingredients to a mixer (a high-speed mixer will give you the best results). Blend all the ingredients until you get a smooth consistency. Mix the coconut yogurt and let it rest in the fridge.
  • Serve it in bowls with your favorite toppings.
