Easy Raspberry Smoothie Recipe

Start the day right with this simple Raspberry and Apple smoothie.

Combine in your blender a cup of frozen raspberries, a small handful of blueberries, two roughly chopped red delicious apples (skin on for added fibre and nutrients), 1/2 a cup of h2coco coconut water, and a dash of maple syrup to sweeten (if desired) - blend and serve!

After I’m finished making the smoothie my toddler finishes the remaining raspberries and bits of apple, which she loves!

Bon Appètit!

Smoothie Fiend

Now that summer is well and truly here the delicious summer fruits are in abundance. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries - all the berries! Here are some of our favourite berry smoothies: 

Mixed Berry Smoothie 

This Recipe is super quick and easy, and makes up to three serves. Simply take a half punnet of blueberries, a small handful of raspberries (I don’t add many as I find them to be quite tart), a full punnet of chopped strawberries and add to the blender. Throw in 2/3 cup of organic coconut yoghurt, 1/3 cup of almond mylk, a small handful of ice cubes, and a tablespoon of maple syrup. Blend until desired consistency is reached and enjoy!

Sunshine Smoothie 

Mangoes are a delicious treat to enjoy over summer. This recipe lets this super fruit shine. Add to your blender one ripe mango and half a ripe banana, chopped into chunks. Squeeze in one tablespoon of fresh lime juice. Throw in two large chunks of watermelon, a small handful of ice cubes and two tablespoons of maple or agave syrup. You can add a small grating of ginger to taste. Blend until desired consistency is reached and enjoy.
