1 tsp (5 mL) honey

1 Tbsp (15 mL) cashew butter

1 tsp (5 mL) lime zest

1/4 tsp (1 mL) allspice

Directions

Into high-speed blender container, place all ingredients in the order listed. Blend until smooth. For a fancy presentation, pour into a large champagne goblet rimmed with coconut and lime zest.
