Pretty in pink raspberry smoothie

November 1 2010

Don’t you just love the colour of this?  I mean it’s gorgeous!  I often make this for breakfast in Summer (although we’re not quite there yet); smoothies are just so much fun to make and sometimes on a warm morning, they’re all I want.  Where I live, in the middle of summer, even throwing some bread in the toaster and making a cup of tea is exhausting and makes you break out in a sweat.

There’s a lot of flexibility in smoothies in terms of ingredients (soy, dairy, low fat, skim, different fruits, ice cream, yoghurt, peanut butter, etc).  I do make a habit of using non dairy milk (soy, almond, oat) for smoothies though, not sure why, other than it seems to lend itself better to smoothies.  I use frozen berries too; the frozen berries make the smoothie thicker and colder which can only be a good thing; click here for how to freeze berries.

This smoothie is sweet and tangy and creamy.  And pink!

Enjoy.


Recipe:

150g vanilla or honey flavoured Greek yoghurt
2 cups (500ml) organic soy or almond milk
100g vanilla soy or dairy ice cream
1 20ml tblspn honey or agave nectar (this depends on how sweet your yoghurt is – you might need a bit more or less)
300g raspberries
A few extra fresh raspberries for the top if you like

Blend the yoghurt, milk, ice cream, honey and raspberries until smooth and combined.

Divide between serving glasses.

Serves 2-3

Note: To enjoy fully, sit outside in the sun while drinking it.

  1. You're so right — that is a GORGEOUS color. I want to take that smoothie and paint my walls with it!Probably not a good idea, I know…but drinking it sounds like a perfect back-up plan. 🙂

  2. Thank you for this, Emma. Believe it or not, but I haven't made a smoothie all my life… seeing this pink sweetie, I realized that the little Riding Hood would love this… Wishing you a beautiful November!
