Once you try this super easy yogurt recipe, you'll never go back to store bought again. It really is so simple to make, not to mention containing all the amazing benefits of probiotics. Cashew make for a wonderful base for any yogurt, not only do they have a creamy light taste, they have a lower fat content than most other nuts. About 3/4 of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, which is a healthy fat, helping to lower bad cholesterol and promote heart health and cardiovascular health. It contains high levels of copper, which in turn helps regulate thyroid functions, helps the body to utilize iron, maintaining bone and connective tissue health as well as helps produce melanin.
This amazing and inspiration video shows that anything is possible, as long as you put everything you have into creating change and you have a tool that is the vehicle for change. Yoga has changed my life in ways I cannot even begin to describe, and seeing it do the same for people all over the world, there's nothing better!
So how do you eating ice cream at 11.30 at night with no guilty conscience? Make it vegan, make it raw! This cashew based ice cream was so easy to make, tastes delicious and has none of the after effects of the normal dairy one. You can add anything into it once you have the base, I just happened to have some pineapple and raw chocolates sitting there so I threw that in, giving it a subtle sweetness while letting the caramel flavour come out.

I'm Binny, a full time Bikram Yoga teacher and studio owner that lives in Perth, Australia.
I started this blog to share the things I love the best in the world: being healthy and happy, food (especially raw), yoga, traveling and most importantly, learning how to love and be true to myself.
I suffered from severe digestive problems when I was younger, being gluten and lactose intolerant, and developed compartment syndrome and fibromyalgia in my teens. I have lived with constant pain for over 16 years now.
Over the past 10 years, I've shifted to a mainly plant based diet and realised that being well and healthy is a way of life. I have been teaching Bikram yoga since 2011, in the US and Australia. Due to my health issues I've also had a lot of bodywork done as well as explored alternative therapies.
I've become much more aware of myself as a result of all this - physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Right now I love my life. In my career I love what I do and I do what I love. I have traveled to some amazing places around the world and made lifelong friends. In between working and traveling, I cook up a storm in the kitchen, especially raw desserts, spend time with the people I love the best, which now includes a yoga husband, a mini yogini Estell, and our dog! I try to listen to my body the best I can.
I truly believe that we all have the power and the capabilities to heal our own bodies, to nourish the spirit and seek our own happiness and life's purpose. This my journey...
