Yes, it is that time of the week again - time for a new smoothie recipe. This week I went a little more decadent with my selection and gave in to a luscious soy raspberry smoothie.
If your weight-loss regimen includes exercise, this is a smoothie for you. Not only are raspberries extremely low in calories, but they're also a source of potassium, which is often lost during exercise.
½ cup fresh strawberries (I always cut the strawberries in half and remove the white core to make a smoother smoothie)
¾ cup frozen unsweetened raspberries
½ frozen banana, sliced
¾ cup plain soy milk (more or less soy milk can be used to alter the smoothie consistency to your preference – more milk will be thinner, less thicker.)
1 tsp. fresh lime juice
Combine ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately, and enjoy. To make more than two servings just make multiple batches in quick succession and serve immediately.
**Tip: To make these ahead of time, blend and store in a tightly sealed jug in the refrigerator until needed. Shake to remix before serving.
