Cashew Banana Smoothie Recipe | Recipes From A Pantry

This is an easy to make creamy vegan smoothie recipe with cashews, bananas and chia seeds.

Day 15 – and I am still in my eating healthy mode. Along with my startling the postman as he comes to drop off my letters by ‘exercising’ along to my Davina McCall DVD. Even my youngest has got with the programme managing at least seven mins of ‘eskercize’ before watching me from the corner with a ‘mama it’s too hard’. Go Bintu, go Bintu, go……

I can’t believe that with the amount of cashew nuts I eat, at least 2.5kg in the last 3 months alone. But I am only now posting a cashew smoothie recipe. Seriously, what is up with that?

Banana Cashew Smoothie Recipe | Recipes From A Pantry

So, better late than never. Here is my current favourite deliciously filling and easy to make cashew banana smoothie. All you do is chuck all of the ingredients into a blender and whizz them up. Plus, as cashews are full of heart friendly fats, antioxidants and vitamins, breakfast has never felt and tasted so good.

One note though is that you will need a powerful blender to get the cashews very smooth. Now go forth and make cashew smoothies. Your heart, belly and everything else will all thank you.

This is the second recipe in my pantry staple spotlight on cashews. Please be sure to check the other recipes out.

  1. I won’t exkersices with you but I’ll definitely try this. I was not happy with diary milk in my smoothie, of course almond milk is the answer.
    Go Binto x

  2. Cashew nuts are fantastic and I want to make your super sounding smoothie. Sadly my blender just isn’t up to the job. What a good addition dates are – not sure why I haven’t tried those in my smoothies.

    1. Both really add something special to your smoothies. I hope you get to try them one day.

  3. Oh I’m a cashew ‘nut’ too! I loooove snacking on them, but this smoothie… I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome I think it is 🙂

  4. I’ve just discovered the benefit of the creaminess of nuts in smoothies. The cashew flavour with the banana and dates sounds delicious and so good for you. GG

  5. OOH loving the sound of this, though I would possibly swap the cashews for peanuts or almonds or maybe coconut, see what you have started 😉 x
