Raspberry yogurt with cashews and shaved chocolate

When I was young I don’t remember ever tasting a raspberry. I think it might have been because my mom did not care for them.

It's just the way things happen in my edible world. I'm currently is a very pro-yogurt phase. I've been eating more than a quart a week and started feeling guilt about consuming so many plastic containers. It was time to restart my homemade yogurt habit....more
