Short Rib Pho French Dip Banh Mi with Thai Basil Chimichurri.
Wow, I am so cold.
Is anyone else just freezing? I feel like I have spent the last three days huddled by my little space heater just watching the snow fall.
Remember when I said we where having spring like weather?
Well, yeah, that’s long gone. The snow and cold, cold temps have returned. I know that a lot of you can probably sympathize with my coldness since I have heard that pretty much the entire eastern half of the country has been having below average temperatures. Well cold temps most everywhere except California, which I heard was in the eighties…maybe I live in the wrong place?
I have decided that I am still ok with the cold though (don’t you love how I talk myself into things!). All the coldness makes me think of all things tropical and lighter, spring food. It’s kind weird, but it’s working.
And it was inspired by this yogurt bowl. It’s winter, spring, summer or fall and it’s amazingly delicious. Almost dessert like, but so healthy it couldn’t actually be dessert.
And dare I say it’s better than plain old yogurt? Yup, I am saying it, it’s way better than plain yogurt. But I really, really love cashews, like love them a lot.
So I kind of get the feeling (because you know, apparently I can feel vibes through the computer screen) that you guys are wondering how the heck I made yogurt out of cashews. It’s definitely not your traditional yogurt.
Cashews are the heavy base, but I also used my favorite coconut almond milk blend to help get everything nice and creamy. Well, that and a mix of chia seeds + flax seeds. I swear, chia seeds work like magic to make things creamy. It’s amazing.
Dates added a little sweetness, and the touch a vanilla adds the PERFECT flavor. No really, it’s so perfect mixed in with the roasted cashew flavor and the slight hint of coconut from the coconut almond milk. Mmmm, I loved it so much.
Incase you are wondering I used Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk Original Unsweetened. It’s one of my favorite non-dairy milks out there. Unlike other products, the Almond Breeze actually has taste! YEAH! So I am really excited to announce that I have decided to partner with Almond Breeze to bring you guys a number of delicious recipes over the next few months. Can you say excited??!
Plus, I am such a sucker for any kind of coconut milk, so I especially love the coconut-almond blend. If you’d prefer, you can just use almond milk or Almond Breeze also has Almond Milk with a Hint of Honey that I think would be awesome too.
BUT if you like coconut, go for that coconutty flavor!!
This roasted cashew-almond yogurt bowl is actually very simple, quick and well, just plain painless to make. It only takes a few minutes of prep time and in less than fifteen minutes you have a delicious healthy yogurt. Add in another fifteen minutes and you have a toasty, amazing granola to top it off with!! And guys, I am not going to lie, I ate this yogurt straight from the blender. It wasn’t cold, but I really didn’t care, it was just so goood!!
And when topped with the match granola? YUM. The granola adds flavor and texture – hey, and it’s green, kind of fun for St. Patrick’s day, which will be here before we know it!
And before I go, I just have to say that this is the perfect recipe to make today and then snack on tomorrow. Because we all know eating healthy is not so easy on a busy Monday. Having a healthy snack, that actually tastes GOOD is always a welcomed treat!

Can you believe that? Look at that creaminess!! The best.
I love the idea of matcha in granola. And I’ve been on a huge matcha binge, so this will be perfect for my next batch of granola!
Looks delicious and with ingredient list, am sure it will taste delicious. One question: where are the probiotics? Unless this dessert has yogurt cultures, it simply is not yogurt—it is a cashew dessert. Yogurt is delicious but extremely beneficial to the digestive system and overall health. I’m sure you don’t mean to confuse your readers… Thanks!
I am sorry if I confused you, but there is no probiotics in this.
I love cashews too! This is such a unique idea, Tieghan! Love it!
Thanks Tori! And arnt cashews the best?!?
