Yummy! Ground raw cashews give this pudding a buttery texture. This is also great with bananas…

1 c bittersweet or semisweet chocolate (chips)
1/2 c raw cashews
1/3 c water
1-1/2 c strawberries, sliced
1/4 c maple syrup
1 t vanilla extract

1. If you’re not using chocolate chips, coarsely chop the chocolate.┬áMelt the chocolate in a double boiler or a bowl set over a pot of simmering water, stirring more or less constantly. ┬áThis won’t take long. Set aside.

2. In a food processor or blender, grind the cashews to a powder. Add the water and blend until smooth. Add the strawberries, maple syrup, and vanilla. Process until strawberries are pureed. Add the melted chocolate and blend until incorporated.

3. Transfer to small individual ramekins or cups (this serves four) or a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.
