I love slurping away on a good, healthy smoothie for breakfast, lunch or as a snack in between meals. My favorite smoothies are sweet with a thick & creamy consistency. I like to use yoghurt or milk as a base but I’ve been searching for a way to replace dairy without compromising taste…..and I found it!
This smoothie is totally dairy-free but still has the creamy texture I love so much. Raw, unsalted cashews bring the “smooth” to this smoothie while providing a wealth of minerals and amino acids.
Cashew nuts are an invaluable ingredient in many raw vegan creamy desserts. I even use them as a substitute for heavy cream in some of my soup recipes.
For the best result, use a powerful blender such as a Vitamix to prepare this smoothie.
- 2 cups Frozen strawberries
- 1 cup Cold water
- 1/2 cup Raw cashews
- 4 Dates
- 1 tbsp Agave
- Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
