Chef's Notes

Making it creamier
Soaking the cashews in water for 4-6 hours and draining the water before blending can help to make this smoothie bowl even creamier, but it’s not a necessary step if you forget or don’t have time.

Make it creamier and naturally sweeter
Add a frozen fairtrade banana to the base ingredients.

Top with your favorite nut or seed butter.

Activate turmeric ingredients
Add a dash of black pepper.
