Cashew Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Here’s a delicious smoothie I found on All-Smoothie-Recipes.com.  I hadn’t come across many smoothie recipes with cashews, so I was excited to try this out.  The combo of the cashews, strawberries and banana was pretty awesome.  I used a frozen banana instead of ice.  The honey added some extra sweetness and masked the taste of the maca.  WIN.
