Sign me up for anything salted caramel. I seriously can’t get enough! I know it’s not a “true” salted caramel situation here but this is a healthier version if you still want to enjoy that flavour combo. It’s the date, cashew butter and a little bit of salt that gives this smoothie caramel vibes.
Here’s a picture of all the ingredients you’ll need to make this.
- whole milk – I like adding whole milk for more protein but you can easily swap it with non-dairy milk
- frozen banana
- medjool date – you can use any dates you have on hand just make sure they are pitted!
- cashew butter
- sea salt
- vanilla protein powder – you can also use an unflavoured protein powder or if you don’t have any, you can omit it entirely
Salted Caramel Banana Smoothie

- 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder

If you’re feeling fancy, spread some cashew butter on the inside of your glass with the back of a spoon.
