I’m a really big smoothie fan and I always have lots of fun trying out new smoothie flavour combinations. I’ve previously shared this super healthy Green Detox Smoothie, but now I wanted to create a smoothie that showcased one of my favourite berries.

I’m beyond excited for berry season. Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries are pretty much the main reason I love spring and summer as much as I do. That as well as sunny weather, light evenings and the excuse to eat copious amounts of ice cream… 😉

But let’s get real, I cannot eat ice cream or decadent desserts all the time and be healthy, even though I’d love to. So that’s why I’ve put my favourite flavours into a healthier treat that I can still enjoy without any guilt.

This creamy raspberry smoothie has a beautiful natural sweetness and tartness released from the raspberries. Every summer we love picking our own raspberries, usually we eat them all in one go, but sometimes we’ll freeze them ready for later use in smoothies or cakes and cupcakes.

I love having frozen fruit in my freezer ready for whenever I’m fancying a smoothie for breakfast or for a snack. I’ve always enjoyed smoothies because they’re super easy to prepare and this smoothie recipe in particular requires just 3 ingredients and will take you less than 5 minutes to prepare. My preference is to use frozen raspberries over fresh because then the smoothie is really well chilled and you can serve it right away!

To serve, pour into glasses then you can sprinkle over chia or linseeds and top with a few extra raspberries. Grab a straw, these pretty pink straws are from my friend Carly at The Shire Bakery for those wondering, then all that’s left to do is enjoy your gorgeous homemade smoothie and satisfy your sweet cravings! 🙂

(Makes 1)

Ingredients:

150g (1 and 1/2 cups) fresh or frozen raspberries (if using frozen allow to thaw slightly)

100g (3.5 ounces) raspberry yoghurt

125ml (1/2 cup) milk, plus extra if needed

Method:

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender. Process until smooth and frothy and then pour and serve in a glass. The recipe can easily be doubled to make more smoothies.
