DSC_0001_watermark rasp ban cashewA frosty Sunday morning and my taste buds were screaming for this combination!  So what do you do?  🙂 Nothing other than feed the body what it craves!!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups coconut water
  • 1 banana
  • 2 cups raspberries
  • 1 tbsp vanilla (you can use less, I LOVE vanilla)
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 3 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 big handful parsley
  • 2-3 big handfuls spinach

Add all ingredients to the blender.  Blend on low speed and gradually increase speed.  Blend on high until smooth and frothy.  To learn more about how I create smoothies visit My Smoothie Approach.

    I don’t like dates. Is there an alternative?

    1. Hi Krista – the dates add a little more sweetness so you have a few options. You can just skip the dates (I do that often when I want something more tart), you could substitute 1/2-1 tbsp Agave or you could through in a few dried apricots (but make sure they are sulfite free, i.e. they are dark and not bright orange). I hope that helps. Catherine xox

    Yummy combo! I think you’re the only other blogger I know who makes smoothies as big as I do or drinks as many of them as I do! xx

    1. HA HA!! Yup, I love the biggies 🙂 that’s great to hear I’m not alone!! It really is a great combo, thanks Somer.

  3. YUM! How many does this recipe serve? 🙂

    1. Emily – it will make about 1.5 litres. It can be 1 or 2 servings depending on what you have the rest of the day. For example sometimes I’ll have 1.5 litre myself which will pretty much last me until 3pm ish at which time I’ll have a snack to take me to dinner. Other days, my hubby & I will share 1.5-2 litres for our morning/breakfast. I hope that helps? Catherine xox

      1. yes -that’s great! I was just thinking that this would be a great morning smoothie to share with my husband before work! :)Thank You!
