Wow, it's been a while! Between traveling and starting a new job I have had no time to share recipes with the dearest One Green Planet readers. Here is my newest obsession.

One of the creamiest and smoothest textures for sauces and dips can be achieved with young coconut meat. In this dip/sauce I combined cashews and young coconut meat with mint to create a great spread. It can be used on crackers, flat breads, or simply eaten with a spoon. Both coconut meat and cashews provide our bodies with healthy fats. So don't be afraid to ditch that morning bagel with cream cheese habit and replace it with this tasty alternative!
