My grandkids LOVED this recipe! I can see how it could become a go-to dessert. I can't help playing with my food, so I tweaked the recipe in various ways. It was still mui delicioso!

If like me, you have an ancient, low power food processor, you can make this recipe in an Ordinary Blender. I had to add more orange juice to make it work, and that was fine.
Since I wasn't sure if my blender would puree chopped cashews, I soaked them first. You could also grind dry cashews to powder in a spice grinder.
I used agave syrup instead of coconut nectar, adding an extra Tbsp. I also added another date. I skipped the vanilla bean and added extra vanilla instead. I also used toasted salted chopped cashews and sprinkled them on top with a bit of extra orange zest.
