- 250g strawberries
- 2 bananas
- A handful of mint, leaves only
- 35g cashews
- 250ml coconut water
- A cupful of ice
Pull the leaves and stalks from the strawberries. Peel and chop the bananas (see our tip about freezing them ahead of time). Pop them in a blender with the mint leaves and cashews.
Pour in the coconut water and add a cupful of ice (if not freezing the bananas). Blend till smooth.
A nice long soak
If you have time, tip your cashews into a bowl and cover with cold water and a pinch of salt. Leave over night. Then drain and rinse well. Follow the recipe. Soaking the nuts removes the enzymes which prevents your body from absorbing the nutrients.
Ice and freezey
For a creamier, colder smoothie, place your chopped bananas into a freezerproof bag or tub. Freeze for at least 6 hours to overnight before blending.
