Breakfast Smoothie: Raspberry Dream

Photography by Leslie Perez. All rights reserved.

What I love most about smoothies is that you can blend most fruits with juice, milk or water and obtain a healthy delicious flavor. This creamy raspberry drink makes for a perfect breakfast to go:

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup of vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 ice cubes
  • Water ranging from 1/4 of cup and up (depending on what it requires to combine all of the ingredients easily)
  • 2/3 cup of raspberries
  • Handful of freshly diced pineapple
  • A small banana or a half, depending on size

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Blend all of the ingredients in a blender (my  favorite is the Magic Bullet) and voila you have a fresh drink to go.

TIP
  1. To turn this beverage into a slush, I suggest you freeze some or all of your fruits. But keep in mind  that if you do so, you may need to slightly ad more water.
