This easy raspberry smoothie combines frozen raspberries and banana with Greek yogurt and almond milk for a delicious and refreshing smoothie that’s packed with protein.
Discover the magic of blending raspberries with creamy Greek yogurt in this refreshing and nutritious smoothie. With its vibrant color, sweet-tart flavor, and rich texture, this Raspberry Smoothie is the perfect pick-me-up any time of day.
Why You’ll Love This Smoothie
- Rich in nutrients: Raspberries are packed with vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. When combined with Greek yogurt you get a protein boost, making this smoothie an excellent way to start your day or refuel post-workout.
- Simple ingredients: Made with just four main ingredients (not including ice), this smoothie is easy to whip.
- Naturally sweet: With the natural sweetness of the raspberries and banana there’s no need for added sugar.
- Creamy and refreshing: Thanks to Greek yogurt and frozen fruit this smoothie has a creamy, almost ice cream-like texture. It’s the perfect refreshing treat on a warm day.
- frozen raspberries – what gives this smoothie its delightful tartness and rich source of dietary fiber and antioxidants.
- frozen banana – this helps to thicken and make this smoothie nice and creamy. It also helps to balance the tartness of the raspberries nicely.
- plain greek yogurt – adds creaminess and some protein. Choose yogurt with live cultures for a probiotic boost. My go-to is plain full-fat whole milk Greek yogurt to get the most protein, but 2% or non-fat will also work. You could also add a flavored Greek yogurt like vanilla if you want. Just be mindful of the sugar content in the yogurt!
- unsweetened almond milk – I prefer unsweetened almond milk because it’s low in calories and sugar, but any milk or even water will work.
- ice – useful for adding extra thickness to your smoothie if needed.
How to Make
This raspberry smoothie recipe is so easy to whip up! Just add your frozen raspberries, frozen banana, yogurt and almond milk to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
Taste and adjust as needed adding a few drops of stevia or another natural sweetener, if desired or ice cubes if you want a thicker smoothie. Blend again until smooth.
Pour your raspberry smoothie into a glass, garnish with fresh raspberries and mint leaves, and enjoy!
Substitutions & Notes
- Greek yogurt: If you need this smoothie to be dairy-free substitute the Greek yogurt with a dairy-free yogurt, like coconut or almond yogurt.
- Almond milk: Swap the almond milk with coconut milk, cashew milk or oat milk for some added creaminess if desired.
- Fruit: Try swapping out the raspberries for other berries, like strawberries, blueberries or blackberries for a different flavor profile. And if you’re not a banana fan you could swap the banana with frozen mango.
- Sweeteners: While optional, natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup or medjool dates can be used instead of stevia if you want some additional sweetness.
Customize Your Smoothie
- Superfood boost: Add a spoonful of chia seeds, flaxseeds or hemp seeds for extra fiber and healthy fats.
- Protein boost: Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder for an extra protein boost.
- Turn into a smoothie bowl: Prefer to eat your smoothie out of a bowl with a spoon? Go for it! Just use less liquid and/or more frozen banana to make this smoothie extra thick and creamy. Here’s my go-to smoothie bowl recipe if you want to check it out.
- Add veggies: A handful of spinach or kale can be added for extra nutrients. The strong flavors of the fruits will mask the taste of the greens. You could also add in some frozen cauliflower or frozen zucchini to sneak in some veggies without adding flavor.
- Nut butter: Adding a spoonful of almond butter or peanut butter will provide healthy fats and make the smoothie even more filling.
- Tropical: Give this smoothie a more tropical feel by swapping the almond milk for coconut milk and banana with frozen mango or pineapple. And top it with some toasted coconut for some crunch.
- Chocolate raspberry: Are you a chocolate lover? Add a scoop of cocoa powder or chocolate protein powder and top it with cacao nibs or chocolate chips for some chocolatey goodness.
