I hope you are all enjoying a peaceful, loving day surrounded by those you love on this Memorial Day weekend. Keeping with the red, white, and blue theme (see my previous post for a free special gift on all orders through this evening at midnight) I decided to post an oldie-but-a-goodie recipe that I tend to use as my go-to recipe for holidays such as today. Watermelon, blueberries, and cashews are all skin-strengtheners and contribute to so many healthy skin functions.
1 Watermelon, cut into squares
2 cup Cashews, soaked for two hours
3/4 cup Maple Syrup
Vanilla, to taste
Water, to taste
Pinch of Salt
Place cashews, maple syrup, and vanilla in food processor and process. Add water slowly, little by little to achieve a smooth, frosting-like consistency.
Place on a ziplock bag and cut a small section of the bottom corner. Use this as your frosting instrument. Squeeze frosting on each watermelon, then top with a blueberry! You can also include little flags on each one for decoration and serving purposes. Or if you do squares, shape them all into a flag shape by topping some of them with raspberries, some with blueberries and some with bananas according to the colors of the USA flag, for a lovely, festive presentation!
