You will love this Raspberry Lemon Smoothie any time you need a quick pick-me-up or a way to start your day.
What do you reach for when you want to chill out and have a refreshing drink? Pop (or soda depending where you live), water, juice? Well, give yourself 5 minutes to whip up a batch of these cool Raspberry Lemon Yogurt Smoothies.
Up until recently I was a big diet Pepsi kind of gal. I would have about one a day and more on the weekends. I felt it gave me the lift I needed but then decided not really, because then I was searching for a salty snack to go along with it.
Oh what a vicious cycle I was in. Well, that has all changed. I've mostly switched to water but when I feel I need an energy boost, out comes the blender and away we go.....
I love experimenting with different smoothie flavors and have found yogurt is a good base. For this version I added some coconut milk and had some frozen raspberries in the house.
Any fruit would do so you decide how creative you want to be. Just be sure to whip up a batch soon! Oh and guess what, if you have some leftover, pour into popsicles molds for a frozen treat another day!
That's what I did.
- 8 oz. lemon yogurt
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup frozen raspberries (or fresh)
- 1 tbl honey
- 1 cup crushed ice
- In a blender, combine yogurt, coconut milk, raspberries and honey and blend until mixed
- Add ice and continue blending until smooth
