Raw Cashew Cream and Raw Caramel – (Take 2)

Or any dessert really! I use these two recipes so often!!! (I have to re-make the video this weekend because it stopped recording  at only 2 minutes. But I wanted to post the recipe today. )

There are three things I dislike about thanksgiving, but i want to write about what I enjoy about it instead. I see thanksgiving as a day to give thanks for my many blessings. November was originally a time of harvest and thanksgiving was a time to enjoy the (hopeful) abundance with neighbors and family. I am grateful that I have healthy food to eat. I am grateful that my loved ones are healthy. I am grateful I have a warm home to sleep in. I am also grateful that I will be spending my thanksgiving with my vegetarian friends.
