Cashew Milkshake (without the milk…)

Cashew SmoothieI have been obsessing about this smoothie, because it mimics the feel of a milkshake for me without any dairy. Both Erin and I share a love of milkshakes – even in the winter, but with Erin eliminating dairy, and me cutting it down, I’ve been on the lookout for a dairy-free alternative.

Enter… CASHEWS! Well, at least for me. Erin has to avoid cashews as well, but you could swap cashews for Brazil nuts for that creamy texture. The frozen bananas thicken the smoothie up and make it cold like a milkshake while the nuts give it that velvety texture. I could drink this every day!


  • 1 cup of soaked cashews (soak for at least 3 hours)
  • 2 cups of water or dairy-free milk alternative
  • 2-3 frozen bananas
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 4 dates (without pits)


  1. Drain and rinse cashews
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth
