I’ve been on the hunt to find the perfect recipe for this raspberry power pudding… I’ve tried so many variations! First with avocados, and then I moved on to cashews. This past week I blended up this simple recipe, and I think we’ve struck gold here! This is such a tasty, healthy, and filling breakfast.
Health Benefits of Cashews!
Cashews are rich in healthy unsaturated fatty acids, fiber, vitamin B6, and minerals such as magnesium, zinc, and copper. Unsaturated fatty acids are so important for maintaining healthy cognitive function, and for reducing any inflammation in the body. Cashews are also rich in the amino acid tryptophan, which is a precursor to serotonin. As you may know, serotonin is an anti-depressant hormone which is so important for helping us feel happy! Cashews are also frequently recommended to help lower risk of heart disease, and can be beneficial for reducing stress.
Raspberry Cashew Pudding
A tasty, healthy, and filling breakfast! Best enjoyed with a cup of matcha green tea!
- 1 cup raw organic cashews
- 1 cup water
- 3 pitted majool dates
- 2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- shredded unsweetened coconut flakes and goji berries for topping!
Add the cashews, water, and dates to a bowl (or your blender) and let soak. This allows the cashews and dates to soften, making the pudding easier to blend and creamier! Allow at least 20 – 30 minutes to soften. Blend until smooth, then add raspberries and maple syrup. Spoon into small glass jars or cups, and top with coconut and goji berries. You can let the pudding set overnight in the fridge, and in the morning breakfast will be waiting for you!
Pairs perfectly with a bulletproof matcha latte! What’s your favourite healthy breakfast recipe for summer time? Let me know in the comments!
