1/4cupraw almondssoaked in water overnight (or 6-12 hours) or 1/4 cup cashews (no need to soak)
1frozen bananaor 1 cup frozen mango
Chia Seeds/Flax Seeds
The night before: Place the almonds in a bowl and cover with water. If using cashews you can soak them for 30 minutes or simply add them straight to the blender.
The next morning: Drain the water, and place the almonds and water in a high-speed blender. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes until the almonds are creamy and you've made a thick almond milk.
Add the remaining ingredients and blend on high until fully incorporated. Enjoy!
Fresh or Frozen Cherries: You can’t beat the convince of frozen pitted cherries! If you have a lot of fresh cherries on hand they will work great too. You can add more ice to the smoothie when using fresh cherries. Banana or Mango: Either banana or mango is delicious in this smoothie. You can use fresh or frozen of either one. Spinach: 1 loose handful is a good amount. Soaked nuts: Soak 1/4 cup almonds overnight or add 1/4 cup cashews. Cashews are a softer nut and will blend up nice and creamy without the soaking time. Orange juice: A little orange juice goes a long way in making this smoothie delicious. You can use all orange juice or half water/half orange juice. Ice: Ice is a must for cold and thick smoothies. The amount of ice you’ll need to add depends on if you use fresh or frozen fruit. Start with 1/2 cup and add more to reach the thickness you like. Thin the smoothie with up to 1/2 cup juice/water to the consistency you like.
