Creamy Cashew Nut Smoothie Bowl (R + V + GF)

Updated: Aug 13

This is by far one of my most favourite breakfast ideas. It is filling, it’s deliciously creamy, it is sweet and provides you with all the nutrients needed for the morning and the day. What could set your mood better for the day than this heavenly goodness?

Cashews calm the nerves and satisfy your belly (and the heart) especially in the form of this smoothie. Their dense heavy and warm quality, builds strength, leaves you feeling sustained and grounded, stabilising your nervous system and the busy mind. Cashews are high in fat and protein, contain zinc and magnesium, and are a highly nutritive stamina builders.


Makes 1 (generous) serving

Preparation time: 5 - 10 min


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 frozen banana

  • 1 ice cube

  • 1/2 avocado

  • 1 date

  • 1 tbsp cashew nut butter

  • 1/2 tbsp lucuma powder

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp cocoa powder

  • 240 ml almond milk

  • little pinch of pink Himalayan salt


TOPPINGS (optional):

  • unsweetened granola

  • fresh / dried berries or other fruit

  • cocoa nibs

  • hemp seeds

* if you are trying to lose weight skip the date, half the cashew nut butter and don't use any extra toppings. My lifestyle is super active so I usually put 1+1/2 tbsp of cashew nut butter (also OK for athletes or generally very active people).
