Creamy Cardamom Raspberry Smoothie

Super rich and tasty layered smoothie made from cashews, almond milk, raspberries and coconut whipped cream is perfect for a snack, dessert or for sweet cravings.


  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 ¼ – 1 ¾ cups almond milk (or oat milk or other desired milk drink)
  • 1 banana
  • ½ tsp cardamom
  • ½ tsp ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder

Mix all ingredients (except the raspberry layer) in a blender until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Add enough liquid to get the desired thickness. Taste and add seasoning or sweetness if desired. Put in the fridge until you’ve made the raspberry filling.

Raspberry layer:

  • 1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries
  • 1 tbsp organic honey
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds

Puree the raspberries in a bowl and mix with honey. If you use frozen raspberries, let them thaw and use only the berries, not all the juice. Add chia seeds and allow to thicken for about 15 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the coconut whipped cream.
