Oh, summer. It’s just peeking at me from around the corner. I can almost feel it! Here in sunny California, it’s been about 85 degrees the past few weeks. I’d love it if that’s as hot as it gets this summer, but I’m thinking the more than 100-degree heat is not too far off. =)
Smoothies are a great way to get in some extra nutrients and refresh yourself on a warm day! Get your Blending Gadgets to make this refreshing smoothie. This Piña Colada smoothie is creamy, sweet and has a good dose of healthy fat from the coconut cream and cashew milk!
For this recipe, I used Silk Cashew Milk–it adds an amazing creaminess that you just don’t get with other dairy-free milks!

I really liked Silk’s cashew milk. Although I usually make my own, I did enjoy the creaminess of it and that is did not have carrageenan as most do. This is a great recipe!!

Cashew milk sounds too nutty. Maybe? I don’t love almond milk but coconut milk is okay. I’ve read a lot of recipes using cashews for creamy textures…this looks tasty and I always love a dairy free option!

Hi, Sarah! I didn’t think the cashew milk was nutty at all, but I only used it mixed in the smoothie. My kids all liked it in their cereal though!
