Cashew nut butter is a great ingredient for creamy smoothies, or simply on toast or drizzled over a smoothie bowl. With an OmniBlend blender it's easy to blend your own butter from scratch, making sure you always have a fresh butter ready for use, without any additives and preservatives.


  • 2 C Cashew Nuts
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • Pinch of salt (to taste)



Roast the cashews on 180C for about 5 minutes, until lightly toasted. Leave to cool down, and then transfer to the OmniBlend jug. The 2 liter jug works best for blending nut butters, as it has a narrow base. Add the oil and start blending, increasing the speed to high, and use the tamper (through the lid) to push the nuts into the blades. Blend until you've reached a creamy butter, and add salt to taste.

Say Nutella and you'll see faces light up instantly! No wonder Nutella Day is celebrated once a year. Hard to resist hazulnut chocolate flavours and sweetness of this chocolate paste make this smoothie with ice cream a real treat.

If you're looking to steer away from sugars, you may want to substitute some of the ingredients in this smoothie, making a healthier version. You can then use this Healthy Cashew Chocolate Spread instead of Nutella, substitute ice cream for coconut cream, and add a few ice cubes.

But it's only Nutella Day 1 day a year, so here we go!


  • 1 C Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1 C Milk
  • 1 Frozen Banana
  • 3 Tbsp Nutella
