Tropical Fruit

Cashewy Tropical Smoothie
Serves 2

We're big fans of smoothies at Tell Tale Towers – they are a great way to fill up with vitamins and keep us going to answer your emails and chat with you on the phone.

Did you know that in Brazil they make juice, and even smoothies, out of cashews? It's probably not what you're thinking though, because they make it out of the cashew apple (the orange bit in the photo). You won't find cashew apples in the supermarket here, but Dee has managed to create this smoothie using cashew nut milk, which you will. It's entirely dairy-free – vegan in fact – and full of our favourite tropical fruits.

Just one sip of this tropical smoothie takes us to straight back to any one of the countries we run Tell Tale trips in. Delicious!

  • ½ cup of raw cashews
  • 1½ cups water
  • ½ pineapple
  • ½ mango
  • 1 banana
  • 3 tablespoons tinned coconut milk
  • ¼ lime
  • ice cubes (optional)
  1. Place the cashew nuts in a blender and pour the water on top and leave whilst you prepare your fruit.

  2. Tell Tale Tip: You can also presoak the cashewnuts in a bowl of water in the fridge which will make the nuts softer and the mixture colder (avoiding the need for ice cubes), but it's not necessary.

  3. Cut the pineapple in two, discard the leaves and skin, then chop half of it into chunks.

  4. Slice the mango in two, take the stone out and cut half of it into chunks.

  5. Peel the banana and chop into 3-4 chunks.

  6. Open the tin of coconut milk and measure 3 tablespoons into the blender.

  7. Tell Tale Tip: Why not save the rest of the coconut milk for one of our curry recipes?

  8. Slice the lime and squeeze ¼ of it into the blender.

  9. Blend the cashew and liquid mixture in the blender on a high speed. Add the fruit and blend until smooth. That's it. Enjoy!

  10. Tell Tale Tip: If you're saving the rest of the fruit for a snack or another smoothie later on, squeeze some of the rest of the lime on it before you put it in the fridge, it will help keep it fresh longer.
