Easy Raspberry Smoothie

Raspberry Smoothie

While I love the idea of healthy or “clean eating” smoothies, I find a lot of them don’t actually taste that great. Green smoothies – regardless of what they say – always seem to keep that “green” taste. Fruit smoothies can easily get too sweet. And banana based smoothies tend to get boring after a while. So, I took things into my own hands! After much experimentation I found a smoothie that I actually enjoy: a raspberry smoothie with hints of coconut and honey.

A quick look at the ingredients you will need

This recipe features simple ingredients and can be altered for your particular tastes though I like it exactly how it is! My only suggestions are to switch the berry you are using or use a different kind of milk (coconut, almond, etc.) to change the flavour without sacrificing the base recipe.

Very Berry

One thing I really like about this recipe, is you can make it in any serving size. For this post I made a ½ serving since I was still experimenting. The recipe below however, is for a FULL SERVING even though the pictures are for half. I wrote in the ingredient picture below that you need double what is shown for a full serving. Make sense? No? Moving on…
