Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 3 pitted dates
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 cup milk any kind

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, at least 1 minute.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Substitutions: Can use honey instead of maple syrup; can use hemp hearts of flax seeds instead of chia seeds 
You don't have to soak the cashews ahead of time; you can, but it's not a must -- just make sure to blend the smoothie for 1 full minute so the cashews break down completely
