Strawberry Cashew Cardamom Smoothie

Finally, a smoothie that does not require homemade almond milk. It does, however, call for homemade cashew milk and raw cashews, so just buy some extra to make your nut milk ahead of time. We find cashew milk to be a bit creamier and smoother than almond milk, and that contributes to a silky smooth smoothie.

We could talk to you about strawberries, cashews, and dates at length, but there is an unusual ingredient in this smoothie: cardamom. There is not a huge amount because too much would easily overpower the smoothie. You get a subtle hint of aromatic essence from the cardamom that blends beautifully with strawberry’s sweet tartness. The sweetness from the dates helps to mellow cardamom’s intensity, so you don’t have to worry about this spice overwhelming your palate.

What you need to know is that cardamom acts like a superhero for your digestive system. It can help soothe an upset stomach and fight off harmful bacteria that cause digestive issues. Researchers note that cardamom’s antioxidant compounds help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Those same antioxidants also work to protect your cells from oxidative stress, so you can remain youthful and spry. Lastly, some studies suggest that cardamom’s anti-inflammatory properties work to lower inflammatory markers in the body. This smoothie is truly the epitome of drinking to your health!
