100 g blanched almonds

100 g raw cashews

60 g coconut oil, melted

1 ¼ C (310 ml) full cream milk

2 Tbsp (30 ml) cocoa powder

zest of 2 oranges

few drops of liquid Stevia*

cocoa for dusting

Combine the almonds and cashews in a bowl and cover with water. Allow to soak for 2 ½ hours and then strain. Place the nuts, coconut oil, milk and cocoa in a food processor and process for a minute or so until smooth. Stir in the orange zest and then sweeten the mixture with a few drops of the liquid Stevia. *Add little at a time as it packs quite a punch.

Pour the mixture into 8 small glasses and set in the fridge for at least six hours. Add a dusting of cocoa just before serving.

Foodie Fact: Stevia is a natural sweetener which is derived from the plant Stevia Rebaudiana. Great because it provides an alternative to sugar without the calories.
