So I went with whip. Just feeling the ‘nice cream’ is a bit overused. And to me ‘nice cream’ (okay maybe just the way I like to eat it!!) is more of a dessert (LOL).
So a whip it is. A strawberry – banana cashew cream whip to be exact!
We are in strawberry season here in Michigan. Finally! (winter was seeming long and I did start to wonder if our rainy, cool spring would drown the berries).
Do you buy local strawberries in your area when they are in season? You should head to a local patch or farmer’s market and get some pronto! They are millions of times better than store bought.
I usually love to take my kids and head to the patch, but this year short on time -and with a vacation in the near future that will take me out of state most of June – I was able to score a whole flat at the farmer’s market early!
Whew! So expect some more strawberry recipes on the blog over the next few weeks – as my kitchen got busy as I processed strawberries into both the freezer and into recipes.
Hence, this first up to bat Strawberry – Banana Cashew Cream Whip!
Which, when my son told me it tasted like the original Strawberry Shakeology we used to drink, well I was just tickled pink! Score one for mom with the most picky eater of our family.
Enjoy it right away after you make it, or freeze and thaw for a cold treat later.
If you make this strawberry – banana cashew cream whip, I would love to know! Tag @badtothebowl on social media.
Bananas, cashews, strawberries and unsweetened vanilla dairy free milk create the creamiest smoothie for breakfast!
1/4 cup unsalted cashews
1/4 cup boiling water
1 frozen banana
10 frozen strawberries
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla nut – based milk (I used Silk brand of Unsweetened Vanilla Cashew Milk)
Use the quick soak method for your cashews. Put your cashews in a small bowl. Cover with the boiling water. Let sit for 20 minutes, then drain.(for super smooth – soak overnight!)
Place in blender with strawberries, banana and nut milk. Blend! You may have to stop and stir depending on the power of your blender. Just keep blending until it reaches a ‘whip’ consistency. It will be thick – spoon recommended!
