Spring is here! The birds are tweeting, the sun is shining, and pollen is EVERYWHERE. Our cars are covered and I can literally see clouds of pollen floating from the trees with every gust of wind. I didn’t want to inhale all that yellow stuff so I decided to stay indoors and celebrate the arrival of spring with a smoothie
Actually this smoothie, has the consistency of soft serve ice cream, which is just how I like it. It feels like I am indulging in on icecream when in reality I am eating veggies and high protein greek yogurt. One of my favorite flavor combinations is chocolate and raspberries so I decided a nutella and raspberry smoothie would be perfect. I added a banana too, to get a creamy consistency, but the banana flavor is overtaken by the raspberry and nutella. I couldn’t help but put a little whip topping and chocolate syrup on top but that part is totally optional.
I love to make smoothies because they are so easy to make, easy to clean up, and are delicious. I have a dishwasher safe blender so I just throw my ingredients in the blender, blend, eat, and then the dishwasher cleans up for me. I love it.
- 3 tbsp nutella
- 1 frozen banana
- ¾ cup frozen raspberries
- ⅓ cup plain greek yogurt
- ⅓ cup almond milk
- Put all ingredients in blender and puree about 3 minutes, or until consistency is smooth.
