Pink Raspberry Passion Smoothie...
Monday was a wonderful day, beautiful, sunny and warm with a nice breeze. Exactly the kind of spring day where you feel the overwhelming desire to kick back with a good book and a delicious fruit smoothie after an afternoon of running around. So that’s exactly what I did. I wanted something sweet, and delicious with berries being the focal point, and so I came up with this super simple smoothie that totally satisfies the tastebuds. Enjoy it garnished with fresh raspberries, near an open window where you can hear the sounds of birds singing, and smell that fresh sweet spring air - or better yet enjoy it lounging outside on the grass, with a book in one hand, and your drink in the other.
Pink Raspberry Passion Smoothie
½ C Raspberries (roughly 23-25)
1 ½ C chopped fresh Pineapple
3/4 C water (or enough to cover blades of a Vitamix)
1 packet Stevia (optional)
- Place everything except Stevia in a high speed blender and process for 30 seconds to 1 minute until everything is smooth. Taste for sweetness and add Stevia if desired.
- Serve in a fancy chilled glass, and garnish with 4-5 raspberries, of if you’re feeling especially creative garnish with raspberries and a thin slice of pineapple.
You won’t be sorry you did, I promise!
