The first drip, a tiny sip, really creamy, totally dreamy. For those who understand. Feeling poetic today! Breakfasts don’t come better than this. This dairy free raspberry smoothie is ready in minutes and is a great way to start the day.
When my autoimmune condition took hold dairy was one of the first things I gave up. Whilst butter can actually be healing for the gut lining, milk caused me a lot of joint pain. I searched supermarkets and health food shops far and wide for nut milks that didn’t contain sweeteners like agave or starchey thickeners like tapioca or carrageen.
Way back then such a thing simply didn’t exist. Then came Plenish Cleanse. Guys I have no association with Plenish nor am I sponsored to write this post, it’s simply my own recommendation but these nut milks are the best.
They come in hazelnut, almond and cashew and are without a shadow of a doubt the best tasting. So creamy as they use the most nuts in a litre. So that’s what you’ll find in today’s healthy raspberry smoothie.
Ripple’s not just for ice cream right? For small and big kids alike. As are all my recipes, this one’s Paleo, Whole30, GAPS, Keto and SCD compliant.
- 120g of raspberries
- 500ml of almond milk (Plenish Cleanse is my fav)
- 125g of coconut yog (The Natural Coyo is my fav)
- 1/2 a teaspoon of honey (optional, I don’t add any but please adjust to your taste)
Place the raspberries in a blender. Blitz until smooth.
Strain the blitzed raspberries through a muslin cloth. Discard the pith. You can choose to omit this step but it stops the smoothie getting stuck up the straw with the ripple!
Keep a good tablespoon of the raspberry juice aside. Place the remaining juice, almond milk, coconut yoghurt and honey (optional) in a blender and mix until smooth.
Pour the raspberry smoothie into a glass and swirl through the remaining raspberry juice.
