Happy Raspberries in Cream Day! In honor of this very special day, I decided to come up with a healthy, dairy free version of raspberries in cream for your morning smoothie. This Raspberry Cream Smoothie is not only delicious, it’s also packed with plant based protein and other nutrients that your body needs first thing in the morning!
For this smoothie, I used a vanilla flavored coconut yogurt to add the “cream” to the raspberries. It’s rich and creamy and the coconut flavor compliments the raspberries perfectly.
In this smoothie you’ll get up to 44% of the daily allowance of Vitamin C which is great for the immune system. And are you watching your fiber intake? One serving of raspberries has 8 grams of fiber, that’s 32% of the daily recommended allowance. Raspberries are also rich in the flavoniods quercetin and gallic acid, which have been shown to have a positive effect on heart health and obesity. Studies also indicate that raspberry keytones may have a role in preventing the growth of cancer cells.
Raspberries are not only delicious, but extremely nutritious. Want to get healthy glowing skin? Add raspberries to your diet! Think about what you’re putting into your body every morning. Is it fresh and vibrant tasting? Or is it heavy and greasy? Which kind of breakfast do you think is going to give you the best results? The smoothie of course!Print
