Red velvet smoothie


Ingredients


  • ¼ cup raw cashews
  • 1/4 C water 
  • ½ – 1 tsp sweetener
  • ¾ cup grated or chopped red beets
  • 4-6 strawberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 dried dates
  • 2-3 T cacao
  • 1 T flax meal
  • 1 T agave syrup

Instructions:

  • Make your cashew cream “filling” first:  Soak the cashews in ½ a cup of warm water for at least an hour, if not longer.  Strain the cashews. In the bowl of a food processor, or in a bowl using an immersion blender, process the cashews with ¼ C water and sweetener until smooth.  
  • To make the smoothie, blend the remaining ingredients together until smooth.  Pour into glass(es) and pour the cashew cream into the center(s).  Voila!
