This morning, I was reading through the beverage recipes in Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen and I began to notice that Ani Phyo puts cashews or other nuts in a lot of her drink recipes. I thought that sounded like a good idea – add nuts for protein, add a little oil for a smooth, shake-like texture and a little good fat… Yum! a full meal with protein to keep me going!
Since I had planned to make an Ambrosia Smoothie, I decided to experiment with that recipe. The result was so filling that I have been going all day on just that one shake. Try it for yourself.
½ C cashews
1 frozen banana
1/4 C dried coconut
1 C apple cider
1 T coconut oil
Put everything in a high speed blender and blend to smooth.
