Start your morning with this vibrant pink raspberry banana smoothie. This creamy drink is nutritious and contains all goodness from fresh bananas, carrots and raspberries.
Do you love making smoothies? I really love them–not only are they tasty, but also super easy to make. You can prepare them in no time. Especially, for those busy mornings when you have to rush, smoothies are the saviors and are great for kick-starting your day. You pack all those vital nutrients into one glass from your favorite fresh fruits and/or veggies. In addition, you can add your choice of nuts to further boost your smoothie.
Raspberries are my less favorite fruit in the family of berries. I don’t like them as much to eat it as a fruit. Therefore, I blend them into to a smoothie with some carrots and bananas. Viola! Who will resist this glass of vibrant pink drink. This is how I encourage myself to eat fresh fruits, especially in the mornings.
