Creamy Banana Smoothie

This smoothie is nice and light and the cashews give it a creamy texture.  The cashews are soaked overnight for easier digestion.  If you are looking for a nut-free option you could substitute half an avocado for the cashews. (You will just end up with a greener looking smoothie)  🙂

Smoothies are a great way to get in loads of nutrients.  They are especially great for little ones who may not otherwise eat some of the ingredients.  They will NEVER KNOW!  (Insert mischievous grin here).

Ingredients: (Makes about 4 cups of smoothie)

1/2 cup cashews (soaked overnight in water and rinsed clean in the morning)

2 bananas

1 cup chopped pineapple

1 heaping tbsp plain greek yogurt

About 3-4 cups cold water (you can adjust amount of water for desired consistency)

To Make:

Blend all ingredients in blender until silky smooth.  Garnish with grapes and chunks of pineapple.

Enjoy!
