Along with sweetened vanilla almond milk, a ripe banana gives just enough sweetness without adding any sugar.
The cashew butter gives the fruit smoothie substance, and makes it more filling. Leave it out for a lighter drink.
So far I've been fond of strawberries, which are in season, but I'm planning to branch out soon to peach, mango, blueberry, and raspberries. You can also use frozen fruit in this smoothie.
A jar blender works best to make smoothie, but a hand held blender stick would do in a pinch.
