This smoothie looks green, but I can assure you it has a creamy vanilla flavour. The green colour comes from spinach, which – honestly- I decided to use because my vanilla protein powder is a weird green colour and it was making the smoothie very unphotogenic, so I had to add in something else that was green!
Raspberry Ripple Smoothie
You can add in the spinach or leave it out, your choice – it tastes yummy either way.
This recipe serves 2 as a snack or light dessert.
- 250ml oat milk
- 100ml coconut milk
- 150g banana - chopped & frozen
- 50g spinach
- 25g vanilla protein powder or 1tbsp vanilla powder/essence
- 6 ice cubes
- 100g pre-frozen raspberries
Heat the raspberries in a small pan. As they begin to soften mash them with a fork. Transfer the raspberries to a bowl to cool them down quicker.
Blend the rest of the ingredients until smooth.
Transfer half of the raspberries into a short glass and pour over half of the smoothie. Then stir the mixture to get a ripple effect. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients in a second glass.
