Banana Cashew Smoothie
Anyway, I guess I didn't completely squash the feeling, because last night I was inspired to take the Dingo out for a run. It was probably about 5 minutes in that I got a killer side cramp. That didn't stop me though! I woke up at 5:30 this morning and gave it another go. Again, side cramp!
When I was in middle school, I remember making banana "smoothies." More accurately, I should have called them banana milkshakes, if we're being real. I used one banana and about a pint of ice cream. Blended it together and felt good about myself for the rest of the day.
BANANA CASHEW SMOOTHIE
Recipe from Real Simple
1/2 c. raw, unsalted cashews
1 c. water
2 c. ice
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1. Soak cashews in water overnight (in blender works well), covered.
2. Add banana, ice and maple syrup to the cashews (undrained). Blend until combined.
