Raspberry Ripe Smoothie

This Raspberry Ripe Smoothie is a fantastic choice for a quick and nutritious breakfast on busy mornings. It’s a well-balanced blend of various essential nutrients, making it a wholesome and satisfying option. Here’s a quick recap of the benefits of each component:

  1. Complex Carbs: The banana and oats provide complex carbohydrates, offering a sustained release of energy to keep you fueled throughout the morning.

  2. Fibre: Raspberries, chia seeds, and oats contribute to the fibre content. Fibre promotes digestive health and helps you feel fuller for longer.

  3. Antioxidants: Raspberries and cocoa powder are rich in antioxidants, which play a role in neutralizing harmful free radicals in the body.

  4. Healthy Fats: Almonds and chia seeds provide healthy fats, which are essential for brain health and overall well-being.

  5. Protein: milk, almonds, and the optional protein powder offer a protein boost. Protein is crucial for muscle repair, immune function, and satiety.

  6. Taste and Enjoyment: The addition of cocoa powder, maple syrup, and optional Milo and cacao nibs enhances the flavour, making the smoothie a delicious and enjoyable treat.

What makes this on-the-go smoothie even more convenient making it in the Froothie Optimum Nutriforce Mini* which is a compact, yet powerful portable blender which I am currently obsessed with!

Overall, this Raspberry Ripe Smoothie is a well-rounded breakfast option that caters to various nutritional needs, and it’s convenient for those hectic mornings when you need a quick and nourishing meal. Cheers to a delicious and healthy start to your day!

Servings 1

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 small handful of raw almonds
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoons cocoa powder adjust to your chocolate preference
  • 1 cup of milk of your choice such as almond, soy, or dairy milk
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup adjust to taste
  • 1 tablespoon protein powder optional
  • Garnish with additional raspberries Milo, and cacao nibs

Instructions
 

  • Start by gathering all your ingredients and a blender. I love to use the new Froothie Nutriforce Mini Blender, as it’s easy to use and completely portable (linked above)
  • Add the frozen raspberries to the blender. Raspberries provide a delicious berry flavour and are packed with antioxidants and fiber
  • Add in your frozen banana. Bananas will add natural sweetness and creaminess to your smoothie.
  • Toss in the small handful of raw almonds. Almonds are a great source of healthy fats and protein.
  • Sprinkle the chia seeds into the blender for extra fibre and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Throw in your oats. Wholegrain oats contain healthy fibre and complex carbs to help keep you full and energised.
  • Add the cocoa powder to the mix. The cocoa powder will give your smoothie a rich, chocolatey flavour and a hit of antioxidants. Adjust the amount to suit your taste.
  • Pour in your milk of choice. This will help blend all the ingredients into a smooth and creamy consistency.
  • Drizzle in the maple syrup for sweetness. You can adjust the amount to your preferred level of sweetness. I personally like the sweetness!
  • If you’re looking to increase the protein content of your smoothie, add the optional tablespoon of protein powder at this stage.
  • Secure the blender lid and blend everything until the mixture is smooth and well combined. If your smoothie is too thick, you can add a little more milk to achieve your desired consistency and to help it blend better.
  • Taste the smoothie and adjust the sweetness or thickness by adding more maple syrup or milk, if needed.
  • Once your Raspberry Ripe Smoothie is well blended and suits your taste, pour it into a glass rimmed with milo (or keep it in your Froothie Nutriforce Mini which is conveniently portable!)
  • Garnish your smoothie with additional raspberries, and cacao nibs for a delightful crunch and extra chocolatey goodness.
