Creative Practice: Today at the market, I saw this delicious looking cashew drink. All it had was cashews, dates, cinnamon, and water. It was $8. Even when I had full-time work this would have been ridiculous. On less than half of a teacher’s salary, it would be a huge portion of my very tight food budget. However I had all the ingredients at home. I soaked some cashews and rinsed them. I added the soaked cashews, a few dates, cinnamon, and water to my Nutri-Bullet. It was delicious and cheap. It makes a great filling beverage, and reminded me of horchata, which I haven’t had in decades because of my dairy allergy. Delish!
