Creamy Cashew Lovers Smoothie

The Creamy Cashew Smoothie is the perfect smoothie for those who love cashews. Cashews are full of heart-healthy fats that have been shown to improve cholesterol and prevent heart attacks and strokes. They are also an excellent source of minerals such as selenium, zinc, and copper. This smoothie recipe also adds ground cinnamon which is a spice that has been shown to speed up metabolism. A touch of cocoa powder gives it a touch of chocolate flavor. Drink the Creamy Cashew Smoothie anytime during the day for a delicious snack, a meal alternative, or as a healthier dessert alternative.

The cashews in this are rather high in calories, but that is from the healthy fat of the nuts. This smoothie is also higher protein, making it great for after exercise and as a meal replacement. The nuts sill help keep you feeling full. I use unsalted cashews for this and it is a favorite morning Nutribullet recipe for me.
