Blueberry dairy free yoghurt

Yoghurt is a go-to breakfast and snack for many, so for those of you following a dairy free diet, having yoghurt taken off the menu can be quite a pain. This dairy free yoghurt is made from cashews, and takes no time at all to make. It is a thick and creamy alternative that everyone can enjoy, it is perfect on granola, or eaten on its own. I have used blueberries in this version, however you can replace the blueberries with the same quantity of any type of berries, mango, peach or even banana.

DAIRY FREE YOGHURT

Ingredients
1 cup cashews, soaked overnight
½ cup blueberries (frozen berries are fine to use, just defrost them first)
¼ cup almond milk (slightly more if you like a thinner yoghurt)
Juice of 1 lime or ½ a lemon

1. Combine ingredients in a blender.
2. Blend until smooth.
3. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
