Simply Summer

I'm back...after two weeks...countless hours on the phone with Dell...and one new hard drive.  

I missed this. But I did find other ways to fill my days.

Nectarines love mint, and so do I. No matter how high the summer temperatures get, mint is cool and refreshing.

Nectarines with Mint Cream
4 nectarines, sliced
1 cup cashews, soaked in water for at least 1 hour, then drained
1/4 cup non-dairy milk, plus more as needed
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
2 Tbsp. agave syrup or honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla
In a food processor, combine cashews, 1/4 cup milk, mint leaves, agave or honey, and vanilla. Process until cashews are ground up. Stream in more milk as needed to reach a smooth, creamy texture. Chill the mint cream for 1 hour. Spoon over sliced nectarines and serve cold.

How have you been?


  1. 2 weeks. That's a long time to go without a computer! It would be nice, though, in a way.

    That recipe looks really good. I love the combo of mint & sweetness.

  2. Congratulations on going two weeks with a computer! I would see that as an accomplishment! I started following your blog because your a vegan mom like me=) My daughter has that same sandbox water thing.=) Thank you for following me as well=)
