Who doesn’t love a good Vanilla Thickshake on a hot day? I remember having these when I was a kid and they certainly ticked all the boxes! These days, one is more conscious of healthy goodness, rather than just a sweet, thick drink – so…it’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed a vanilla thickshake 🙁 So, if you are like me and get more enjoyment from feeling good after you have eaten – then I am sure you will enjoy making this in your Kuvings Vacuum Blender!
Dairy-free and full of goodness
This milky drink get’s its milk-like taste from Cashew Nuts. Equally, you could use Macadamia if you don’t have any cashews.
The sweetness is from Medjool Dates – so, if you like a sweet Vanilla Thickshake, then put the full quota of dates in. But, if you’d prefer a more vanilla milky shake, without the sweetness, I’d only put half the dates in.
- 2/3 cup raw cashews
- 6 Medjool dates, pitted*
- 1 banana
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 cups ice cubes
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- pinch cinnamon
- pinch sea salt
*If you like it sweet, add all 6 dates. If you don’t like it too sweet, only put 2-3 dates in.
