Blueberry Cashew Smoothie with Cashew Caramel Swirl

I have no words…

Well okay that’s not entirely true. This smoothie is probably my all time favorite, ever. I know, I know you’ve probably heard me say that before and you guys know how much I love my smoothies. This one though seriously tastes just like a dessert. It’s so decadent and the caramel swirl (recipe based from this one) absolutely makes it. It’s completely guilt-free, vegan, packed with muscle building protein, healthy fats and good crabs to keep you going throughout the day. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Blueberry Cashew Smoothie with Cashew Caramel Swirl

Gluten-free/Vegan/Soy-free

Serves: 1

Prep time: 10 minutes

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/4 c frozen blueberries
  • 1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp cashew butter
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Caramel Swirl

  • 1/2 tbsp cashew butter
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • pinch of pink sea salt
  1. In a high powered blender, combine the banana, blueberries, protein powder, almond milk, cashew butter, flax and cinnamon.
  2. Blend on high until smooth. (These measurements create a spoon-worthy smoothie. If you prefer it a bit thinner add a touch more liquid.)
  3. To make the caramel swirl, add the cashew butter, coconut oil, maple syrup and sea salt to a small saucepan.
  4. Melt the ingredients together over medium-low heat until runny, about 3 minutes.
  5. Pour the smoothie into a glass.
  6. Then, pour the caramel on top and swirl it into the smoothie using a spoon. Enjoy immediately.
