How do you get people to try smoothies? You let them choose the ingredients 🙂 (and then tweak them in case you already know it wouldn’t go well together – find my tips on how to make the perfect smoothie here and here for green smoothies.).
This one was an order from a friend and it turned out beautifully!
1 cup raspberries – 170g
1 orange, either a large one or 2 small ones
1 cup water – 200ml
1 scoop raw vegan vanilla protein powder, e.g. Garden of Life or Sunwarrior
The banana was frozen as the last ones I bought ripened so quickly I had no other option.
Also, frozen bananas make creamier smoothies and are great to make ice cream!
Blend all ingredients and serve immediately or fill into mason jars to take to work.
Makes around 1 liter.
C = cup, 240 ml
1/2 C = half a cup, 120 ml or / TBSP
1/4 C = quarter of a cup, 60 ml or 4 TBSP
TBSP = table spoon, 15 ml or 3 tsp
tsp = tea spoon, 5 ml
“soft dates” = medjool are usually best. If necessary, soak briefly and drain. The soaking water is super sweet by the way!
