My a/c broke the other day (in a heatwave, no less) so I had to find alternate ways of keeping cool. I decided to make smoothies! I was digging in the freezer trying to see what fruit I had, and could only find raspberries (which isn’t the usual fruit I use for smoothies) so that’s how I came up with this refreshing Raspberry Dreams Smoothie! It’s creamy, it’s dreamy, it’s oh so very raspberry-flavoured!
I don’t know why raspberries aren’t in my usual smoothie rotation — they’re such a great flavour addition! I use a combo of bananas and dairy (yoghurt and milk) for the creamy base, but you could easily use coconut yoghurt and soy milk if you wanted to make this smoothie vegan. This quite a healthy smoothie, with no added sugar as the banana is all the sweetener you need. Plus, the raspberries contain a bunch of fibre (who knew?) and the dairy gives you some protein so that the smoothie has staying power.
Not a fan of raspberries? Just substitute in another berry, such as blueberries, strawberries, or even mulberries!
Now, let’s get to making us some creamy, dreamy smoothies!
- 1/2 c. frozen raspberries
- 1 banana
- 1/2 c. yoghurt
- 1/2 c. milk
- 3 ice cubes
- Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Serve in chilled glasses or over ice. Enjoy!
This smoothie can easily be made vegan with the substitution of coconut yoghurt and almond milk for the dairy.
