  1. Heat a wok with oil over medium heat. Add zucchini and bell peppers and saute until starting to turn tender, 4 to 6 minutes.

  2. Add garlic and chicken and saute until chicken is heated through.

  3. Push all ingredients to the side forming a hole in the middle, like a donut. Give stir-fry sauce a stir and pour into the donut hole. Wait for it to darken and bubble, and then toss to mix with chicken and vegetables.

  4. Remove stir-fry from heat and stir in cashews. Transfer to a serving plate and top with cucumbers and cilantro. Place lime wedges on the side.

  5. Serve stir-fry with smoothie. Enjoy!
