This vivid raspberry mango smoothie has a robust, refreshing taste!
I’ve been on a smoothie frenzy recently (more recipes to follow!) and today’s Raspberry Mango Smoothie recipe was inspired by a strong need for raspberries. I’m talking about how I couldn’t think about anything else till I had some raspberries in my stomach.
Unfortunately, it is still officially winter and raspberries are not in season, so I must settle for frozen raspberries, but that is not an issue when it comes to smoothies!
I never use bananas or yogurt in my smoothies since I don’t like them. My smoothies are always made with frozen fruit, chia seeds, and either nondairy milk or fruit juice ( la the orange juice in my blueberry smoothie bowl).
If I’m using bitter ingredients, such as blackberries, I could also add some honey, agave, or maple syrup. And occasionally, regardless of the ingredients, I simply want a little more sweetness, so my pot of Boston Honey Company honey comes in handy!
I needed raspberries this time. Needed. I had frozen raspberries and frozen mango on hand, so I decided to make my breakfast tropical by combining them both with coconut milk. I topped it with some shredded coconut just for fun.
I also craved chocolate, and happily, the boyfriend surprised me with a Taza Chocolate sampling from the Boston Public Market. You should sample their chocolate. It’s stone ground and has a gritty texture with a strong taste. I’m not giving it justice, but it’s the most chocolately-chocolate I’ve ever eaten. It’s just what I imagine chocolate to be. So go ahead and purchase some and thank me later.
In this case, I decided with the Salted Almond chocolate disc. That’s essentially almonds, which implies it’s healthy. Right? Right.
Each disc has 8 small triangles that readily break apart, making it simple to divide. I selected a single triangle, cut it up, and tossed it on top of my vibrant crimson smoothie.
Then I thought I needed a little more, so I added another triangle as a garnish.
I like my smoothies thick enough to need a spoon, but if you like them to be sippable with a straw, just add extra nondairy milk to get the desired consistency.
