    Oh, Elise, thankyou for that lovely post about me, and book, and the recipe. I hadn’t seen that photo at our pie making class. Oh, what an amazing, magical day that was….You are just the best. Love to you and your beautiful dad. You know I have a soft spot for him…..and you. xxxx

    This smoothie sounds delicious! We have nut allergies so I’m going to substitute sunflower seeds for the cashews and rice milk for the almond milk. I’m hoping for similar results.
    Thank you for sharing! :)

    This recipe sounded delicious. I followed the recipe although without soaking the dates prior to adding them to my blender. My husband and I both found the taste to be unappealing with no apple pie flavor but sort of an earthy quality.
    I’ll stick to making the berry smoothies.

    Yumm! This is good :) I just tried the maple syrup version and I really liked it! Next time I’ll try macadamia nuts though, since I like them better than cashews. Oh, and I added some vanilla ice cream :)
