A frozen banana, water, ice, cashews, dates and a pinch of sea salt are all the ingredients needed to put together this temping date smoothie recipe by Blissful Basil.

The 'Creamy Cashew Caramel Smoothie' channels the flavors of caramel with soft and chewy dates instead of an artificial caramel additive, which makes the recipe wholesome as well as flavorful. Since all of the ingredients can be added to a blender and instantly combined, in all, the total time it takes to prepare and make this smoothie is about five minutes.

Rather than using a base of cream or milk, this dairy-free smoothie is almost like the beginning stages of creating nut milk from cashews. With a small sprinkling of sea salt to round out the sweet flavors of this blended beverage, this is the perfect way to indulge in the flavors of salted caramel in a healthy way.
