Chef's Notes

Substitutions
Top with your favorite nut or seed in place of almonds.

Top with peanut butter or tahini in place of almond butter.

Top with more hemp seeds or flax seeds in place of chia seeds.

Instead of additional strawberries, top with other organic berries of your choice.

Add sliced fairtrade banana on top in addition to the berries.

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.

Add a frozen fairtrade banana for more creaminess and a banana strawberry flavor.
