This month I will be featuring the book: Nourish The Definitive Plant-Based Nutrition Guide for Families by Reshma Shah M.D. M.P.H. and Brenda Davis R.D..
One of my absolute favorites that has so much valuable information and delicious recipes. A must-have for anyone wanting to get the entire family on a plant-based lifestyle.
I can't wait to show you a few of my favorite recipes from Nourish and in today's video give you a chance to win one!
Head over the my Nourish-Cookbook Cashew Pear Cream Video and check in the show notes on how to enter the contest.
For today's video, I shared the Cashew Pear Cream from page 390 of Nourish The Definitive Plant-Based Nutrition Guide for Families.
I also included a nut-free pear cream for those who may be trying to lose weight or have a nut allergy.
Nut Allergy Pear Cream Adapted Recipe
3 pears chopped
1 cup white beans (rinsed and drained)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Blend together all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.
Store in the refrigerator.
Wonderful on pancakes, waffles, oatmeal - or anything you'd use whipped cream on! Also can be a great applesauce replacement.
The recipe from the cookbook does contain raw cashews which makes the pear cream a similar color and texture to whipped cream.
I'd recommend using it for the cashew version kids or family members who you may be transitioning to more plant-based recipes. However, both recipes are delicious!
We always use fresh ripe pears instead of a jar/can of pears --however either work!
I hope you'll give this recipe a try, and check out the book Nourish The Definitive Plant-Based Nutrition Guide for Families by Reshma Shah M.D. M.P.H. and Brenda Davis R.D..
We love seeing photographs of the recipes and just in general hearing from you guys!
Wishing you all the best,
