Raspberry Almond Smoothie
AND, it has a top-secret ingredient that your kids will never guess.
There is a whole handful of mixed greens in this tasty, sweet, smoothie!
Ha! They’ll never know!
If you’ve never tried vanilla almond milk, here’s your chance. While it’s not my top favorite to drink straight out of the glass, vanilla almond milk adds a deliciously sweet touch to cereal & smoothies. I actually prefer vanilla almond milk with my granola over regular milk.
I love the addition of mixed greens here because the purple-ish lettuce leaves help the smoothie to maintain it’s rich color. If you substitute something like baby spinach or baby kale for the mixed greens then you might end up with a less appetizing smoothie color. Frozen strawberries don’t actually have a strong flavor, so the addition of them here is mostly for the ‘chill’ factor & the ‘color’ factor.
Try this smoothie and let me know what you think!
P.S – As always, if you use raspberries in your smoothies you will get a few little seeds. Just pour it through a cheesecloth if texture bothers your child. The flavor is worth it!
