Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup strawberries 200g fresh or frozen
  • ½ cup cashews 60g must be unsalted, can be roasted or raw
  • 2-3 dates
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2.5 cups milk or dairy alternative

Instructions

  • Place everything in a blender and blend!

Notes

Tips

  • I often use frozen strawberries as it means the milkshake is nicely chilled when first made
  • I have made these milkshakes with cows milk, almond milk and rice milk all worked well

Substitutes

  • Strawberries: In this recipe, you can use fresh or frozen berries, you can also sub for another berry like blueberries or raspberries
  • Cashews: I use cashews to add creaminess to my healthy milkshakes, an alternative to give a creamy texture is frozen bananas. If you are using cashews or another nut, make sure they are unsalted.
  • Dates: The dates add a little extra sweetness, you can either leave this out completely or sub for a little maple syrup or honey.
  • Milk: I use full-fat milk in the milkshakes I make for my kids, but you can use the milk or milk alternative you prefer.
