Raspberry Banana Smoothie

Raspberries are in season and make a nice sweet and tart smoothie. I love a brightly colored smoothie but raspberries do not make the most colorful smoothie unless paired with another berry. If you enjoy a certain amount of tartness to the smoothie you will like this. If you like your smoothies very sweet then try adding a mango or similar sweet fruit.


Over the years movie theaters have gotten very creative. The regular movie snack counters have expanded from the usual soda and popcorn to a variety of sweet and savory snacks. But it is the innovative theaters that serve food at your seat, anything from smoothies and snacks to a full meal. Berry and banana smoothies are very popular on this menu especially in summer. Now reclining seats with food trays attached may not be your kind of movie experience. But there is a huge clientele for it and these theaters are showing up everywhere. Personally I prefer the regular theaters with bucket seat that recline but not too much.


But I do enjoy a smoothie any day and this raspberry smoothie was no exception.

You will need
1 cup raspberries
1 banana
1/2 cup yogurt
1 1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp. sugar (optional)

Blend all the ingredients together until smooth and creamy.


Enjoy!

  4. The smoothie has a beautiful color and it fills you up as well. I am not a big fan of raspberry as such, but then I am not quite against it as well.
