Pour in 330ml ultimate almond drink (keep the rest of the carton for this week’s other smoothies) and drop in a handful of ice cubes. Whizz till smooth, then pour into glasses and serve.
A nice long soak
If you have time, soak the cashews in water overnight. Drain, rinse and add to the blender with the rest of the ingredients. Soaking makes them easier to blend and may make them easier to digest.
