Today we are sharing a simple, fresh and healthy recipe for a Raspberry & Coconut Smoothie! During the summer I’m always craving a fresh fruit smoothie, and this is one of my favorites.
Add blueberries to the raspberry layer for an extra fruity punch!
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (plus extra if you want to sprinkle some on top of the drink afterwards)
coconut water (frozen into 6 ice cubes)
1/2 frozen banana (peel before freezing)
1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder (optional)
honey (optional: to add some sweetness)
1. We are going to make the coconut layer first – Place 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes, 1/4 cup greek yogurt, 6 coconut water cubes and 1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder (optional) into blender and blend. Pour mix into glass and rinse blender.
2. Now for the raspberry layer – blend 1 cup of fresh raspberries, the 1/2 frozen banana and 1/4 cup cup greek yogurt. If you prefer sweet drinks, add 1 teaspoon of honey before blending. Pour mix into glass & decorate the top with coconut flakes!
My pumpkin addiction continues with this Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie!
(I promise this will be the last pumpkin recipe for awhile 😉 )
Like almost every other girl, I am guilty of being obsessed with Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes & Frappuccinos. When September rolls around, they are literally the only thing I want to drink & they are one of my favorite things about Fall. What I don’t like is the $5 a drink price tag. (right ladies?!)
My mom & I decided to make our own Pumpkin Smoothie. Not only is it a lot cheaper to make, it is also healthier for you & super tasty!

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

After searching through everything-Fall related on Pinterest, I came across a few different Halloween Milkshakes. I thought they were so cute, I had to re-create one and make my own Spooktacular Halloween Milkshake! It’s an extremely easy, classic vanilla milkshake recipe with some added Halloween treats to add some spookiness! It’s so festive & fun, and kids will love it!
