I never thought this would be as delicious as it is. Super refreshing, tart, and sweet. 

The best type of dessert is one that you can feel good about. 

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup soaked cashews 

3 tomatillos 

2.5 cups of strawberries (prefer frozen)

2 cups almond milk

11 cardamom seeds (or 2 tsp ground cardamom)

4 dates

5-6 ice cubes

 Cardamom pods on top. The seeds are inside the pods. Don't eat those...

Directions: 

  1. Soak cashews in water overnight (or in boiling water for 1 hr).
  2. Peel the paper layer off of the tomatillos and wash very well (they will feel sticky). 
  3. Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.
