Using a food processor or thermomix
Grind your cashews and peppitas and place in a bowl to the side.
Place medjoole dates in the food processor and approx 1 tsp of honey. Until all blended well and smooth.
Add 3/4 of your cashew and peppita mix back to the blender, along with a sprinkle of desicated coconut and chia seeds. Mix well.
Add vanilla bean seeds. Mix well.
Add the rest of your cashew and peppita mix and mix well.

In a bowl have some sesame seeds, scoop small balls out of the blender and roll in the palm of your hands then roll in the sesame seeds.

Seriously if you can get these to last more than a week – HALF YOUR LUCK!
I made a large batch and they all went like hot cakes in a few days

Fruit Water CRAZY!

Doesn’t every one love a thirst quencher??

OH MY GAWD, if you love fruit and love being healthy then this is definitely one for you! and its sooooooooooooo simple. All you need is an empty bottle and some chopped up fruit. i love buying what ever fruit is in season, especially when its local and fresh produce – you can really taste the LOVE of home grown fruits.

So here are some of the most recent fruit combinations i have made:

Strawberry and kiwi fruit – watermelon and cucumber

mint and nectarine – strawberry and mint

peaches

these combos could be anything you choose, or anything you have on hand! its an easy way to flavour your water with out cordials or artificial flavourings.

you can fill them up a few times through out the day and they will continue to infuse the water. probably not as flavoursome as the first time you fill it up, but its certainly a kick of flavour you didnt have with just plain water.

HAPPY WATER FRUITS guys!
