Cacao Cashew & Almond Milk Yogurt

My fridge is always littered with store bought yogurts (So Delicious brand coconut milk yogurt is my favorite) but this recipe is wonderful and more nutritious than the grocery store stuff, if you can spare a little bit of time to create it. It’s tangy from a little citrus, sweet from agave, and creamy as all get out from the soaked raw cashews.

I add in my favorite superfood powder to make it even more so, a good-for-you breakfast. The benefits from the addition of Cacao Magic Superfood Powder from The Philosophie are bountiful and pick up where a regular dairy-free yogurt leaves off adding back in a dose of calcium. It’s also energizing and full of protein–oh, and tastes perfectly chocolate-ey with no added sugar.

The only thing about this recipe that takes time is the soaking of the cashew nuts that isn’t hard (nuts in bowl, cover with water, leave in fridge overnight)–it’s more than you have to remember to do it. Not my strong suit, remembering to do things after a long day at work but you’re probably better than me at it. Once you have remembered to do this and it’s the next morning–the recipe is “toss in the blender and turn on” simple.

Ingredients Serves 2
1 cup raw cashews, soaked in filtered water overnight
1/3 cup vanilla, unsweetened, almond milk (can substitute plain almond milk with 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon raw agave nectar
1 tablespoon Cacao Magic Superfood Blend from The Philosophie (can substitute raw cacao powder)
Optional yogurt toppings (suggestions shown: banana slices, cacao nibs, and dried & unsweetened coconut flakes)

Directions
1. Add all ingredients into a high speed blender or food processor and purée until very smooth (no lumps or mealy texture!)
2. Top with your favorite toppings
3. Store leftovers, covered, in the fridge for up to 3 days
