Smoothie - Lazy Lady Blueberry Cashew


Prep Time

2 min

Prep Notes


You know when you’re hungry in the middle of the day and everything in your house — or in the fridge at work — requires assembly for to be tasty? 

 

Well, here's your answer...

Ingredients


  • 1 cup frozen banana, chopped into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup frozen (or fresh) blueberries
  • ¼ cup "raw" cashews or cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons hemp hearts (or more cashews)
  • 1 teaspoon local bee pollen
  • 1 medjool date, pitted (or raw honey)
  • filtered water

Directions


Add bananas,blueberries, cashew, hemp hearts, bee pollen, and date to your blender cup.


Pour in enough water to almost cover the ingredients (this makes it ice-cream-thick, if you want it thinner pour in enough water to cover the ingredients fully).


Blend until creamy and as close to a uniform texture as you can get it. If you're using a Vitamix (lucky you!!!) the cashews will go smooth and everything will come out perfectly even. Otherwise, you may have a little bit of texture from the cashews as they're unslaked. Who cares? 


This is a lazy smoothie. 


Drink up!

Notes


Here’s a bit about the nutrition in this smoothie: 


blueberries are antioxidant rich; 


cashews are chock full of potassium, good fats, and protein; 


bee pollen has every amino acid necessary for human life i.e. it’s protein rich and also a good source of B-complex and folic acid; 


hemp is high in protein and good source of Omega-3 fatty acids
