Strawberry-Banana Cashew Cream Whip

Jump to Recipe

Do you call it a whip? or ‘nice cream’?

Decisions. Decisions.

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.

Strawberry-Banana Cashew Cream Whip

Bananas, cashews, strawberries and unsweetened vanilla dairy free milk create the creamiest smoothie for breakfast!
Course: 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!
