Happy 4th of July loves! After an enchanting family vacation in Tel Aviv, I’m thrilled to be back in the United States to celebrate this country’s birthday. With everything that’s been going on in America recently, it might be hard for some people to feel patriotic - but like our bodies, minds, and souls, our country has its own imperfections, and the desire for positive changes that we want to see it make come from our love for the place we call home. That’s why, on Independence Day, I celebrate my country the same way I celebrate my body: by giving it what it craves and needs.
This yogurt bowl recipe accomplishes just that. I’ve fallen in love with this unique cashew yogurt from Forager Project, a dairy-free yogurt made from organic, ethically-sourced and sustainably farmed cashews that include healthy cultures to promote the replenishment of crucial gut bacteria. It’s creamy, yummy, and an excellent source of protein and essential vitamins and minerals. To that, I add a fresh assortment of my favorite summer berries such as strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries for both flavor and antioxidants. Then, I throw in some coconut flakes and garnish with a heavy drizzle of Berry Bee Honey, the perfect sweetener for a colorful, tasty finish. It’s got all the red, white, and blue you need to feel like a true patriot this 4th of July.
I recently tried this recipe with a Cacao Magic Cupcake on the side and could not believe what was going on with my taste buds...SO GOOD! Try it yourself and feel the fireworks in your belly with every scrumptious bite.
1 cup Forager Project organic dairy-free cashewgurt
A drizzle of Berry Bee Honey
¼ cup assorted berries
1 tbsp coconut flakes
1 Cacao Magic Cupcake (optional)
Add the yogurt to a small bowl and top with berries and coconut flakes. Scoop desired amount of honey into a microwaveable glass and zap just long enough to liquefy about 15 seconds. Drizzle honey over a bowl and enjoy!
