Lime Coconut Cashew Cookies

I guess this baby likes lime! I drink stevia limeades all day and try to get as much citrus as possible. The Costco bag of lime just isn't big enough!

This recipe requires a dehydrator, but if you've got one they are SO simple.

3 c frozen raw cashews
2 c shredded coconut
1/2 c maple syrup (it's not raw, but it's not processed)
2 T Lime Juice
1 T Lime Zest
1/4 coconut oil (softened)

Put the frozen cashews and coconut in a food processor and blend until they are all broken and crumbly (don't run it for too long or it will get oily)

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl.

Add too your cashew/coconut mixture and combine until lightly creamy.

Roll into little balls and place on teflex sheets.

Dehydrate at 120 for 8 - 10 hour depending on desired crunch.

Today's Morning Smoothie

This morning called for something out of the ordinary. Normally I stick to our regular coconut smoothie, maybe a frozen fruit smoothie. Neither of those would do today.

Here's the recipe for our delish Lime Smoothie:

1.5 cups fresh juiced organic apple (I used a pink lady - next time I will use granny smith for the tart flavor)
1 ripe avo
2 ripe (frozen) bananas (they are ripe when they have brown spots on them)
3 T lime juice
1 T lime rind

Blend and enjoy!

This makes enough to serve two + adults. Havah, Baruch and I finished ours in just a few minutes and enjoyed every sip!
