Nourish: Coffee and Cashew Smoothie

Who here is a fellow caffeine addict?! I’m a solid 2-cup a day gal, but every once in a while, I try to spice up my morning coffee routine and make it a bit more protein packed. This coffee and cashew delight, is creamy, full of natural protein, and a splash of ice cold almond milk. Its clean, vegan, and a great way to start your day.

Coffee and Cashew Smoothie

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Serving Size: 1


  • ½ banana, peeled and mashed
  • ¼ cup cashews (soak in water for at least 6 hours prior. I soak a batch before bed so they are ready in the morning)
  • 1 tablespoon cacao
  • ¼ cup of fresh brewed coffee (cold)
  • ½ cup ice cubes
  • 1 cub unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ tablespoons coconut sugar (optional)


Combine all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Take a picture of your coffee concoction, tag @pointepeople, and enjoy!

As always, keep dancing!
