This Raspberry Smoothie is one my favourite smoothies of all time. It is super fresh, zesty, and packs 30 grams of protein per serve! This is your new favourite companion after a workout, or even just for breaky everyday. The flavour combination of the raspberry, banana and lime is just right, with no overpowering banana flavour, which you often get when adding banana to a fruit smoothie. And its Vegan of course!!
Raspberry Banana Smoothie Ingredients
This smoothie uses the freshest ingredients, whilst ensuring its packed with protein to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
Frozen Raspberry & Banana
The frozen fruit in this smoothie provides most of the flavour and sweetness that make it tasty & fabulous! I like to always keep a bag of raspberries & bananas in the freezer so that I never have to worry about any of the ingredients turning rotten. It also means that I can have this smoothie whenever, even if I haven't been to the grocery store recently.
Flaxseeds & Chia Seeds
Both flaxseeds and chia seeds are an excellent source of the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). They are also a great choice for Plant-Based protein, with 1 tablespoon containing 2 grams of protein each. Chia seeds are well known as one of the most nutritious foods on planet.

For this reason, I always like to have flaxseeds, chia seeds, or both in my smoothies in the mornings
Don't underestimate the flavour oomph that the juice of half a lime can add! I highly recommend that you don't skip on this ingredient. Although a small addition, the fresh lime juice adds that perfect zest to cut through the tartness of the raspberries.
The pea protein powder is of course optional. However if you are vegan and active, this is great way to add some protein to the start of your day. I use a high quality flavourless pea protein powder
Almond milk is a fantastic vegan milk alternative. If you prefer to not drink almond milk, or you have ran out, you can just use water instead. It just won't be quite as creamy.
I promise that you won't even taste the spinach that you add to this smoothie! I like to always keep a bag of frozen kale or spinach to add to my smoothies in the morning. This is a great way to sneak in some greens!
