Our little girlies are very adventurous eaters. You can put pretty much anything in a blender, give it a swirl and a cute straw, and they will drink it and declare it the most delicious smoothie ever!

I, however, am a lot little more discriminating. Texture (and taste) are key!

I’m happy to report that this smoothie has a delightful taste and texture – the yogurt and red raspberries provide a tart little tang, and the coconut flakes and tiny dark chocolate chunks offer a little chew/crunch. It is pure perfection in every sweet and tart pink sip!

This raspberry smoothie is also a breeze to whip together! Drop the ingredients in your blender, and give it a whirl!

Blend until ingredients are just combined for a chunkier texture, or blend longer for a smooth, creamy drink.

Pour into some pretty glasses, (cute, paper straws optional) and enjoy immediately!

I’m thinking you’ll fall in love.

This is a refreshing, slightly tart smoothie, with a hint of the tropics. Enjoy for breakfast, an easy afternoon pick-me-up, or an anytime snack!

Ingredients

  • ice (5-6 cubes
  • 1 container (6-7oz) greek yogurt (plain, vanilla, or coconut)
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate, chopped (you can also use semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened, shredded coconut (I love "Let's Do...Organic" Reduced Fat Unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbsp honey

Instructions

  1. Simply add ingredients to blender.
  2. Blend to desired consistency.
  3. Serve and enjoy immediately!

Notes

This smoothie can be totally customized to suit your personal taste.

Add more ice for a thicker, shake-like smoothie.

Adjust the amount of honey (or sweetener of your choice) depending on desired level of sweetness. (The flavor of yogurt you choose will also affect sweetness.)
