Lemon Sweet Cream with Winter Fruit

Happy 1st Birthday the Bee’s Knees Kitchen!  It has been an eventful year here in the Kitchen.  Never would I have believed how many followers the kitchen would have or all the encouraging comments it has received.  I will keep making tasty raw food recipes that look as beautiful and appealing as ever.  Thank you to everyone who has commented, subscribed and read the blog!  So we have several ways we are celebrating this year, first, the Bee’s Knees Kitchen now as a fan page on facebook.  So please become a fan so you can be updated on new mouth watering photos and posts.  And second, the beautiful Eva at Uncooking 101 has been so lovely to feature a week of my recipes starting from the 28 February! 

So as a special birthday treat, I would like to present you with a simple dessert, the sweet and tangy Lemon Sweet Cream with Winter Fruit.  This time of the year it is always a challenge with the limited array of  winter fruit available here in frozen Northern Germany.  But the pairing of the sweet, crunchy pomegranate and tangy grapefruit  is perfect for your taste buds with the lemon sweet cream.  So add everything to the blender, pour into jars and top with fruit, and celebrate with us!

Lemon Sweet Cream with Winter Fruit

Lemon Sweet Cream:

  • 1 1/2 c Cashews, soaked for 2 hours and rinsed

  • 1/2 c + 1 tbls Filtered Water
  • 2 tbls Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 tbls Lemon zest

Blend all the ingredients until completely smooth.  Pour into 4 jars, glasses or 1 large bowl and let set  in the fridge for 1 hour.

Winter Fruit topping:

  • 1 Grapefruit, peeled and skin removed
  • 1/3 c Pomegranate Arils

Top each jar, glass or the entire bowl with the grapefruit and sprinkle the pomegranate arils over the top.
