Fun, fancy smoothie blends are a great way to get a variety of fruits, vegetables, and superfoods into a daily diet. But sometimes simple is best. My basic go-to formula includes a carbohydrate (usually fruit), a fat, and a protein. This easy, refreshing, and filling cashew smoothie is a perfect example. The banana provides the carbohydrate, cashew butter for fat, and protein powder for protein (though hemp seeds or tofu would also work here). Greens add a little freshness, and lots of ice make it a frosty cool treat for breakfast, a snack, or anytime pick me up!
