CREAMY CASHEW COOKIE BOWL

May 11, 2018

Using crunchy cacao nibs as a topping on this creamy smoothie really reminds me of eating a delicious bowl of cookie cereal. This smoothie is oh-so-creamy and completely fruit-free! While fruit is a healthy addition to the diet, it can really add to the sugar content of your day… so exploring some fruit-free smoothies are a great way to reduce overall sugar intake. If you’re scrunching your nose up at the idea of putting cauliflower and zucchini in a smoothie, give it a go and see just how creamy this smoothie ends up!

TIPS AND TWEAKS

To make this smoothie vegan, go for a pea or brown rice based protein.

Soaking the cashews adds to the creaminess of this recipe. If you don’t have 30 minutes to soak the cashews, simply place them in boiling water for five minutes to soften them.
