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.
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.
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…
Recipe (1 serving)
- 1 Cup Milk
- 2/3 Cup Raspberries
- 2 Tbsp Coconut
- 2 Tsp Honey
- 1/4 Tsp Cinnamon (more of an add to taste thing)
- Combine all ingredients in blender.
- Add ice cubes to alter thickness.
- Blend until smooth and all ice broken up.
- Pour into a glass and sprinkle with coconut.
That’s it: 5 ingredients and 5 steps. Nice and simple.
Any alterations you would suggest? Comment below and I will post my favorites!
