Has anyone else tried cashew yoghurt and what are your thoughts on them? I must admit this was the first time I have ever tried them, and it was like a match made in Heaven! Vegan and full of good fats! Bring on more cashew yoghurts to come! 😉

TIP – If you’re not vegan, honey is best consumed raw, as the heating process destroys the real goodness of honey.
