COMMENTS: 

This is a fantastic recipe for a breakfast smoothie or an after school smoothie for the kids.  You have great fats with the coconut milk and the avocado.  You have loads of anti-oxidant phytonutrients in the spinach and lime.  You have great flavor in the raw honey, banana and vanilla. 

Soaking the cashews is advantageous as it helps to remove the phytic acids and enzyme inhibitors that block nutrient absorption.
