This dairy-free afternoon yumminess is surprisingly rich, creamy and satisfying. You’re effectively making your own nut milk to order then adding banana. I’d like to put in a hearty vote for frozen banana here, it makes the smoothie way more special when it’s icy cold. Adding chia seeds amps up the omega-3 content and gives a silky texture.
|¼ cup||Cashew nuts, raw|
|¼ cup||Desiccated coconut|
|1 Tbsp||Chia seeds|
|1||Banana, pre-frozen in pieces, or an unfrozen banana (Main)|
|1 tsp||Ground coffee beans, optional|

- Place cashews, coconut, chia seeds and water into a blender and run for about 30 seconds. Giving this stage a bit of time allows the water to soak in to the nuts and seeds nicely, making for a creamier end result.
- Add banana and coffee then blend again until completely smooth.
