Raw Strawberry Banana Crepes

It was our 1st anniversary this weekend (yeah!!!!) and I thought what better way to start it off then with some delicious and decadent crepes! mmmmm! These were amazing! They were also pretty light as we were not weighed down by sugar, flour, heavy cream etc. The crepes had the texture of banana fruit roll-ups and went so perfectly with the cream and the berries! There was only enough cream for 6 of the crepes, but 3 each was more than enough. They were so good! They were also quite simple. You have to plan ahead with the crepes and soaking the cashews but they are both so quick and easy it was no trouble at all 🙂 and soooo worth it!
