So it’s been a while since I’ve shared a smoothie recipe with you all and I figured it was about time to change that. Believe it or not, I do actually eat things other than candy, cookies, cheesecake, and well… you get it.
I tend to do most of my baking on the weekends, so during the week I try to keep most of my meals relatively healthy. With the occasional dessert thrown in there.
One thing that I love to make? Smoothies. I’ve mentioned it before, but at the end of the week I usually have a few overripe bananas leftover. Instead of throwing them out, I love to bake with them or slice them up and freeze them to use for smoothies during the week.
This banana and raspberry smoothie is perfect for a quick, easy, and healthy breakfast that you can take on the go with you. It’s even great for a post workout snack too. This smoothie is so creamy and delicious, I can’t get enough of it! I guarantee you will love it too!
This raspberry smoothie recipe comes together with a handful of ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe:
- Banana: Needs to be sliced and then frozen. Don’t add a whole, unsliced frozen banana to the smoothie, otherwise your blender will struggle to blend it up.
- Raspberries: You can use fresh or frozen berries.
- Almond Breeze Almondmilk: Yes, this is a fruit smoothie with almond milk! Almond milk is subtly sweet and creamy.
- Greek yogurt: I love to use vanilla Greek yogurt because it tastes good and adds a little protein to the smoothie. You’re welcome to use another flavor, if desired.
- Oats: These may seem like a weird ingredient and you can definitely leave them out, but they help to thicken up the smoothie a bit and add a little more staying power too.
- Honey: I prefer using honey to sweeten my almond milk smoothie, but you can use your sweetener of choice.
How to Make a Raspberry Smoothie
This raspberry banana smoothie recipe starts with one of my favorite things, Almond Breeze Almondmilk. I made the switch to almond milk years ago and never looked back. In fact, it’s the only milk that we buy anymore and my husband even uses it in his cereal too.
Along with the almond milk, you’ll add in your frozen banana, some fresh or frozen raspberries, Greek yogurt, oats, and a little honey to sweeten it up a bit. Blend everything up until smooth, then enjoy!
Can I Use Another Type of Milk?
If you have a nut allergy, try using another one of Almond Breeze’s non-dairy milks instead. Their coconut milk would work nicely in this recipe! Regular milk will work just fine too though.
Can I Use Another Type of Yogurt?
Yes, any type of yogurt will work in this recipe. Just keep in mind that Greek yogurt will make for the thickest smoothie.
- I love the combination of raspberries and banana, but this raspberry smoothie can be made with any combination of frozen fruits you like.
- For a thicker smoothie, use all frozen fruit. You can even throw in a handful of ice cubes if you like your smoothies to be really thick.
- Make sure to use a high-powered blender for this recipe. Depending on the quality of your blender, you may need to scrape down the sides of the canister a few times to get everything to blend up properly.
