Yumbarrita! You're going to need:
Around 1/3 cup Cashews (about 15-20 actual cashews... I normally just guess) - brazils work well too!
Somewhere between 5 and 8 dates depending on how much you happen to be craving their iron-filled sweetness
A medium-large banana
Around 1 cup (250mls) water..... yup, water.
Then we get to have some fun! This morning I added in:
1 Tsp Peanut Butter
A smidge of tahini
1 Tsp Cocoa
1 Tsp Coconut butter
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Sprinkle of nutmeg
I always added tahini and/or peanut butter and the cocoa but you can have a play around with it. If you're feeling extra awesome, add a handful of spinach - we didn't have any in today sadly :(
Chuck all your dry ingredients in the blender
Add your water and then blend, blend blend baby! I tend to knock it up on high for a minute and then bring it down a bit lower for 20 secs, then a bit lower again for 20 seconds and they give it a final 10 second blast on high! This makes sure all the chunks are gone :) I normally have my smoothies uber thick so have a bit more water on hand if you want it a little thinner. Finally, grab a glass, pour it out and drink till its gone!
Extra Tip: This smoothie is awesome for making a fake smoothie moustache! Hehe :D
