Vanilla Thickshake

February 23, 2016


This smoothie recipe has so many variations. It's one of those things that you can add what you have on hand in the pantry at anytime and the flavour generally stays the same.

The core ingredients I will list as the base. Feel free to interchange the *optionals with what you have on hand or what pantry specials you scored whilst doing your weekly shopping.

I'll give you some tips on ingredients that I love to throw in from time to time. If you discover or try any new optionals please feel free to share them below too!


Vanilla Thickshake Base Recipe. 

{Per serve for 1 adult ratio}

1 regular size banana pre frozen into inch sized chunks.
200 ml of chilled raw coconut water.
6-8 raw cashews. (* Macadamias work well too)
8 cubes of ice.
A few drops of pure vanilla extract or pinch of vanilla powder.
+ 1-3 tableaspoons of *optionals.

Throw all ingredients into blender and blend on high for around 1 minute. I find the sweetness of this perfect for my tastebuds but if you wish to add more sweetness just add 1 or 2 medjool dates before blending (seeds removed of course).

*Optionals to add. Sometimes I add up to 3 extra tablespoons to each smoothie of;

1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds. (sometimes they are referred to as Linseeds)
1 tablespoon of pumpkin seeds. (Sometimes referred to as Pepitas)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds.
LSA (Linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds made into a blended meal)
Frozen berries.
Macca root powder.
Frozen mango.
Raw cacao powder. This turns the vanilla flavour instantly to chocolate!
Coconut chips.
Cacao nibs.
Hemp protein powder.
