Peach Dessert

I am loving this Peach dessert I made , inspired by a friends idea/recipe.
1/2 a cup of soaked (over night) raw cashews
1 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon almond coconut milk or soy milk
2 large peaches
1 tablespoon maple syrup
juice of 1/2 of a medium sized lemon
First soak raw unsalted cashews in water overnight,(I enjoy the organic raw cashews from Sunfoods).
Next take 1/2 cup of the soaked cashews, the water, almond or soy milk and maple syrup (from Dean at Maple tree farm ,of course) and puree in a good blender or food processor until smooth (you can add small amounts water or almond /soy to help smooth out the nut cream) 
Then cut the peaches and add to the mix along with the lemon juice and blend until smooth puree
Pour mixture into a freezer safe baking dish and put in the freezer

after a couple of hours take a fork and break up the mixture (similar to a granita or sorbet) scraping across the top, repeat this as often as you like or need until mixture is light and icy
then serve it up!!! I added some mint from the garden but you could top it however you feel
It light and refreshing dessert for Summer!
thanks Taaj!
