    Mmm…it’s such a lovely color! I always make the exact same smoothie, I need to branch out.

  2. Christine (Merf)

    I would eat that just for the color. So uplifting!

    Oh I dread to think what my food processor would do to these ingredients but I love the sound of it – and onya for keeping on with the challenge – I thought maybe you were going to knock over the blue them and cup theme together! though you really aren’t that far behind – and it is great doing blog events with an elastic deadline! Hope you feel better soon

    Sorry to hear that you’re sick. I’m sure the blueberry goodness will help you recover quickly.

    What a fabulous colour that smoothie is! I totally want to make it. Drinking purple is so much more attractive than drinking green. Happy to eat green, just not drink it.

    Super sad sorry sickness.

    My fourth-grade math teacher was a very serious-looking Asian woman who frightened me half to death every day that I approached her classroom. She was the definition of strict (elementary school-style). However, she had a jazzercise mug that had pretty much a permanent place on her desk. I should have realized then that she may have had a wild and crazy midriff-baring side to her!

    YUM! That looks delish – so light and fresh which is perfect for this summer heat! 🙂

    Delish, delish, delish! Glad to see you putting that Vitamix back to good use! 😉

    What a great idea to add dates!

  9. Priyanka

    i am making this for breakfast tomorrow! Love it!

    I love your blog Hannah, always makes me smile, you are so funny. BTW the smoothie looks delicious!

    Blueberry chia pudding is actually one of my very favorite desserts! Having it in smoothie form would be fantabulous. 😉

    Thanks so much for entering the SOS Challenge this month, with such a yummy recipe, too! 😀

  12. Errign

    Eeek sorry you’re sick. Hope you’re feelin’ better already 🙂

    This smoothie sounds delicious – do you think the cashews would still get proper blended in a regular blender?

  13. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Being sick with a cold myself, this is one of the few blogged dishes that currently appeals. I hope you feel better soon!

    This is almost like a “milk” shake…the cashews would give such a lovely creaminess, no wonder you needed the water.

    Unfortunately I also got sick during the long weekend, and it was during my Melbourne holiday!!
    I was worried about being cold in Melbourne but that was not a problem – in fact I was burning up with a fever the whole time!!
    I had dinner at a restaurant across the road from Lord of the Fries one night and I was thinking of you. 🙂 Lord of the Fries has lost its appeal to me because on their website they state they use cottonseed oil!! My goodness – that’s something to hide; not something to be proud of!

    I hope you recover soon honey. xx

    OK this is an odd thing to say but I hope you might not mind me saying odd things but don’t you think we should rename the blueberry to the purple berry? Or even better the purple monster aka Grimace berry? Hmm although McD references aren’t good. OK I’ll shut up now 😛

  18. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    love the idea of using cashews in your smoothie!! i have yet to do my blueberry challenge. will have to think of something later this month! hope you are having a wonderful week 🙂

    Talk about multitasking.. you go girl! AND GO TO BED!!

  20. hungryandfrozen

    Wowee, that does sound like a lot of water. But I trust your trust of Ani 🙂 hope it did the trick and made you jazzercise-party-ready – get well soon!

  21. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Smoothies are the best when you’re sick! I often use water in my smoothies because I never seem to be able to keep soy milk around, and I’ve had some pretty good results with water!

  22. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I totally love the *idea* of a cookbook challenge, but taking one *for real* would totally stress me, I’m afraid. Life always likes to get in the wa. 😉

    The smoothie looks wonderful. I’ve never had one with cashews. WHY?!?!?!

  23. leaf (the indolent cook)

    That is a lot of water, but with those ingredients I can see how it all works! Good stuff with the addition of chia seeds too!

  24. The Teenage Taste

    Mmm…that smoothie looks so pretty. I bet it tastes deeelicious, too!
    Have a great day! 😀

  25. chopinandmysaucepan

    Love this beautiful lilac colour. I’m sure it tastes as good as it looks 🙂

  26. Anna Johnston

    Oh I could go one of these right now. I burnt my tongue and I just know the pretty colour and yummy taste of the berries would totally heal me. 😉 And, I love that the water is hidden. Dont you find it hard to stomach the stuff when its so cold and miserable. Go you for tackling the challenge. Although stressing about it bestie wont help your creativity flow. As a compition chef, my words of advice are…. Write a list, add some silly statements, like…. Smile, Have Fun, Take a big breath. You cant go wrong when youve got your list. 🙂

    Wow, what an awesome smoothie! I adore dates but never thought of putting them in a smoothie. How thick and sweet and delicious is must be! plus cashews!! wooooooo amazing. Hope you feel better soon, lovely.
