This really sounds amazing. That's really helpful info about cashews creating a creamy texture without having to use actual cream. I was actually wondering how to accomplish that effect in my smoothies without getting all the fat from cream. Thanks for sharing this recipe!


I love everything about this recipes and will make it really soon. The only way I can enjoy cashews is "hidden" in a smoothie and this one looks so creamy. I love that you used dates for sweetness, can hardly wait to try this recipe. Another masterpiece, I'm sure!:)

Hi David - glad you liked the cashew cream tip! They do still have fat, but it's definitely healthier than dairy cream!

Hi Adriana - thanks for your comment! I think this recipe is so simple but very effective. I hope you enjoy it!


Andrea, hats off to you! This smoothie is INSANELY DELICIOUS!!! I made one yesterday, another one today and I also tried a peach/mango combo which was great. For someone who's not a fan of cashews, this was a huge surprise. Unbelievably creamy texture, the sweetness was just right and the fruity taste perfect. This recipe is a keeper!

PS It's that time of the year again and my arms are covered in scratches;) BB Apple Crumble coming up! I think I'll try a mixed berry version as well this year. Are you planning new blackberry recipes this season?

I'm so happy you enjoyed it Adriana! Thank you for letting me know! I think I'm going to be absent for much of blackberry season as I am away the whole of September in Thailand! Hoping to post about my vegan food adventures over there though :)

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
