Ingredients

  • 2 cups raspberries
  • 1 frozen banana (sliced and frozen overnight)
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup nondairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (or honey, optional)
  • ½ cup ice (optional)

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a blender.
  • Blend smooth, starting on low and working up to very high. Let it blend on high speed for 30-60 seconds to help blend the seeds in the raspberries smooth.
  • Serve immediately or freeze for future use.

Notes

  • To store, freeze smoothie mixture in an ice cube tray overnight. Store for up to 3 months in a sealed freezer bag. Transfer a few cubes to a blender and add 1/2-1 cup milk (or orange juice) and blend to serve.
  • Add 1 tablespoon hemp seeds, 1 teaspoon chia seeds, or a handful raw cauliflower or baby spinach to add nutrition to this smoothie.
And to vary the flavors in this smoothie, try:
  • Raspberry-Mango Smoothie: Replace the banana with frozen diced mango.
  • Raspberry-Orange Smoothie: Replace the milk with orange juice.
  • Raspberry-Avocado Smoothie: Add 2 tablespoons fresh or frozen avocado.
  • Raspberry-Chocolate Smoothie: Add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder and increase the maple syrup to 1 tablespoon.
  • Raspberry-Blueberry Smoothie: Replace the banana with frozen blueberries.
