I’ve wanted to try a smoothie for a long time; they always look so delicious and healthy. Since they are more or less a meal replacement, I was worrying that the smoothie wouldn’t fill my belly as a normal meal, especially because you’re drinking and not eating it. I’m sure most of that was just my mind playing some trick on me because I got hungry more or less as usual, maybe only slightly earlier. If I think of the smoothie as a snack or small meal, I really like the raspberry – chocolate – protein smoothie…

Raspberry - Chocolate - Protein Smootie
1 serving Prep time: 5 min
Cook time:
Course category: Snack, Breakfast

Raspberry-Chocolate-ProteinSmoothie nutritionIngredients
  • 50g raspberries (frozen)
  • 1 (small) apple (e.g. Granny Smith)
  • 50g spinach (frozen / defrosted)
  • 150 – 200ml chocolate protein drink (e.g. Valio ProFeel)
  • 10 almonds
  • Cinnamon or cocoa (to garnish)

(The nutritional info is based on 200ml protein drink (Valio ProFeel) and cinnamon to garnish)


Preparation
Step 1:

Chop the apple and the almonds roughly.


Step 2:

Add all ingredients (except from the cinnamon or cocoa) to a blender.


Step 3:

Blend.


Step 4:

Pour the smoothie into a glass and garnish with cinnamon or cocoa.


Step 5:

Enjoy your smoothie.

The smoothie tastes pretty much like raspberry and chocolate – which is why I gave it this name. I hoped to taste the apple and the spinach more though, so I guess next time I’ll just use a bit less raspberries…


Have you tried smoothies? What are your favourite ones?

XOXO
