"It's Hot Out" Treat, with a cherry on top....

Dang it is hot and humid here in Ohio.  BUT, I am NOT I really am not.  After this past winter, I doubt I will complain about the heat again.

Instead, I will cool off with a fun treat.

Dark Cherry/Vanilla Frozen Treat

1-2 frozen over-ripe bananas
1/4 cup of raw cashews soaked in enough water to cover
1/2 cup of frozen dark cherries
2 Medjool dates
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla powder*

Soak cashews for a few minutes (I do this right in the Vitamix).  Add bananas and cherries, dates and vanilla powder.  Process and add more water if Vitamix bogs down.

Serve, eat, smile.

*I splurged awhile back and ordered some Wilderness Poets Vanilla Powder.  You can learn more about it here:  or here, where I ordered it:

This is SERIOUS vanilla and wonderful.  I like that there is no alcohol too.

Yummy, yummy, yummy and a nice reward after some hot outside work.
