I spent a couple hours weeding in the strawberry patch and "orchard" today, in between rain showers. While I was out there, I collected our first good strawberry harvest of the year. I'm glad we decided on getting varieties that fruit at different times, so we can have a prolonged strawberry season!
I thought I would share a really simple recipe for a drink I've been having a lot lately, usually with frozen strawberries. Tonight's strawberry shake was a treat because I made it with fresh-from-the-garden strawberries. The cashews have a substantial presence, without making the shake too rich. Yum yum yum.

Strawberry Cashew ShakeThis will make one large shake or two medium-sized shakes.
Ingredients:4 good-sized strawberries*
1/4 cup raw cashew pieces
2 cups non-dairy milk of your choosing (I usually use rice)
3 dates, pitted
Agave, optional (if you want added sweetness)
Method:Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth!
*If you use frozen strawberries, as I usually do, the shake will be a little thicker.
