Cashew Chia Coconut Smoothie

Cashew Chia Coco Smoothie

This is such a fabulous all round lovely Smoothie – I’ll just have to share it with you!

It’s creamy, mild and comforting. With a cashew coconutty velvety yumminess.
And when you’re after a refreshing zing, then I suggest you add a bit of yoghurt & lemon. Very nice!

Sounds great, Sandra–and looks *very* creamy! Sorry I didn’t have a chance to create one of my own for your challenge. . .it’s been quite a ‘challenge’ getting everything done over the past few weeks! Hoping things will calm down now that the book is under wraps. Thanks for sharing with Wellness Weekend, as always! :)

Creamy and green is my favorite! Love this smoothie. I did it without the yogurt and it was creamy enough! (Aren’t chia seeds just little miracles???) Thanks for linking this up to Raw Foods Thursdays too!
