This is a wonderfully simple and nutritious raspberry smoothie that tastes as good as it looks!
Berries are some of the most nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich foods on the planet, and I make a point of eating them multiple times per week.
Raspberries are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fibre, and disease-fighting phytochemicals. Specifically, these little red gems are rich in antioxidants such as ellagic acid and anthocyanins, which are believed to have benefits against heart disease, cancer, and cognitive decline. A half cup contains only 3 grams of carbs, making raspberries a good choice for those on low-carb or keto diets.
For 2 servings, blend together until smooth:
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
1 cup canned organic full-fat coconut milk
1/2 cup or more unsweetened coconut water, adjusted to desired consistency
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Lakanto monkfruit sweetener, pure stevia, or raw honey (nonvegan), adjusted to taste
Note: If serving for breakfast or a more substantial snack, I boost this shake with protein. Good options here include one or more of:
