Cashew Smoothie Recipe Using Raw Cashews & Whole Milk
Cashew smoothie recipe using raw cashew nuts and whole milk with few other ingredients is a simple and delicious smoothie recipe, which tastes much like a milkshake as we also use whole milk in the recipe and so you can also call this as a cashew milkshake recipe.
This is a high calorie smoothie recipe as it uses calorie rich cashews and whole milk which makes it very delicious too, but its healthy as well if you reduce the sugar or use natural sweeteners instead of white sugar so you may enjoy this as part of a healthy diet for weight gain if you plan your diet accordingly. If you are looking for a healthy smoothie for kids which will help to gain weight, you may try this smoothie and may use natural sweeteners instead if you wish (this recipe uses nuts as you can see, so make sure there is no nut allergy).
As you can see this cashew smoothie recipe is not vegan (I say this as mostly cashew based drinks are mostly expected to be made using cashew nut milk and thus be vegan) as we use whole milk along with raw cashews to prepare this delicious, yummy and kid friendly smoothie.
Cashew nuts are very healthy and this cashew milkshake or smoothie is a great way to get your kids to have them, if you don’t want to give them whole nuts as they are or if they don’t like the texture otherwise.
Cashew nuts are very delicious nuts on its own and the blending of delicious cashews with whole milk will make an absolutely delicious combination! Make sure to use good quality raw cashews to make this delicious drink.
You may also add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the smoothie if you like, which will take this to the next level.
I love enjoying raw of salted cashews for snacks and I also like to make gravies or curries that use cashews as base for the gravy. I have recipes using cashews in this blog and you can see some of them below.
