Recipe Steps

Step One

Soak your cashews in very hot water for 15 minutes to soften them. Then, rinse and drain them in a fine-mesh strainer.

Combine your plant milk, cashews, frozen strawberries, frozen banana, lemon juice, and vanilla extract in the base of a high-speed blender like a Blendtec or a Vitamix.

Be sure to check out my tutorial on the best way to freeze bananas. And, check the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact measurements.

Step Two

Blend on high for about 30 seconds, or until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Step Three

Once you’ve blended your strawberry cheesecake smoothie, then you can serve it right out of the blender. I put some rice milk whipped cream and crushed gluten-free vanilla wafer cookies on top to help replicate the taste and texture of a cheesecake crust.

This recipe makes two servings.

Pro Tips

  • Feel free to add 1/2 cup of frozen cauliflower rice if you want even more nutrition (see how to steam and freeze cauliflower for smoothies).
  • Use a Blendtec or a Vitamix to ensure that the smoothie gets very creamy and fully blended.
  • Add 1/4 teaspoon of beet powder to make this smoothie even pinker in color.

Yes, you can! It may not be as smooth, but it will still be delicious.

I’m not dairy-free or vegan, can I use regular milk?
