Banana Raspberry Smoothie Ingredients
When I make smoothie recipes, I try to stick with simple ingredients. Here's what we're dealing with:
- Frozen banana
- Strawberry Greek Yogurt
- Unsweetened Almond Milk
- Fresh or Frozen Raspberries
- 3 Ice Cubes
- 1 mint sprig (optional)
Do I Need To Use a Frozen Banana When Making Smoothies?
Yes! Whenever I make smoothies, I always use a frozen banana. Have you ever tasted a frozen banana? They are fantastic and taste like ice cream. Using a frozen banana when making a smoothie provides a creamy texture. And who doesn't love creamy smoothies?!?
When freezing bananas for smoothies, make sure you are using a ripe banana. Unripe green bananas tend to have a bitter taste and will not produce the creamy texture you want in your smoothie. To freeze a banana, unpeel it and place it on a plate. Freeze for a minimum of 2 hours.
How to Make Raspberry Banana Smoothies
When making this smoothie, you can use either fresh or frozen raspberries. I tend to use fresh raspberries because you can really taste that freshness. And I'm all about fresh ingredients. Guys...this fruit smoothie is so easy to make. Here's how it goes:
- Place the frozen banana, raspberries, Greek Yogurt, almond milk, water, and ice cubes in a blender
- Puree the ingredients until creamy and smooth.
- Pour the smoothie into a glass and top with a fresh mint sprig.
Go ahead and indulge!
If you're looking for kid smoothie recipes, try this one. My kids love when I have this smoothie ready and waiting for them when they get home from dance and basketball practice. As for me, I enjoy this as a healthy breakfast smoothie. I get my protein from the Greek yogurt and almond milk and my fruit from the banana and raspberries.
