There’s nothing like a patch of warm weather to put me in the mood for smoothies. I made this one a few weeks back and it was too good not to share. This smoothie is almost like a slushy. Thick, delicious and sweet, it’s perfect for replenishing carbohydrate after a tough exercise session.
I used a mango flavoured coconut water which was super delicious and added a nice flavour to this smoothie. The banana taste doesn’t come through very strongly at all, but it does add a nice thickness to the smoothie.
The combination of banana and coconut water make this smoothie a good source of potassium. A diet that is high in potassium is associated with maintaining good blood pressure control.
Here’s how to make this tropical raspberry smoothie
1/2 bottle of Mango Cocowater
1 small banana
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
You don’t have to add the chia seeds, but they do add some extra fibre and omega 3 fats.
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until the smoothie is thick and well blended.
