Author: Molly Patrick of Clean Food Dirty Girl


  • 1/2 cup raw cashews 75g, soaked in water for at least 10 minutes
  • 5 medium-sized dates pit taken out and simmered in water for 10 minutes
  • 3 cups unsweetened nondairy milk 700ml
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • small pinch ground cloves optional
  • small pinch cardamom powder optional
  • small pinch salt optional
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 very ripe banana frozen or fresh
  • cinnamon stick optional


  • Soak the cashews and simmer the dates while you work on the next steps.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the nondairy milk, chia seeds, nutmeg, cinnamon, ground cloves, cardamom, salt and vanilla. Stir the ingredients with a whisk and let set for 10 minutes.
  • Drain and discard the water from the cashews and the water from the dates. Add the cashews and the dates to your blender, along with the nondairy milk mixture and the banana. Blend until ridiculously creamy and smooth, at least 2 full minutes.
  • Sprinkle with a bit of fresh grated nutmeg and garnish with a cinnamon stick before serving.
  • This drink is really yummy served cold or warm!
