Plant-Based Cashew Butter & Raspberry Smoothie

Indulge in this creamy, vibrantly pink smoothie that packs plant-based protein.

Ready for a nostalgic nod to childhood lunches? This smoothie is inspired by a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, pairing tart fruit with a creamy nut butter. You can use this customizable formula to swap out the raspberries for strawberries or other berries, or cashew butter for peanut or almond butter.

Cashews contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, and are protein-rich. They are a great vegetarian source of copper and zinc. Frozen raspberries add a beautiful pink color, 9 grams of fiber, as well as 60% of the daily value of vitamin C to your smoothie.

Cottage cheese is also a smart choice for probiotics which are important for gut health and the immune system. To make this recipe vegan, use a vegan cottage cheese substitute or swap it for silken tofu.
