Frosty Raspberry Green Grape Smoothie.
Raspberries and green grapes are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K, both which strengthen your immunity, clear skin, support bones and enable blood to clot! I also added avocado and zucchini to thicken the texture as well as add veggie power. And I used chia powder to thicken as well. I used my ice cube pre-make technique so actually have a whole week of this flavor stored in my freezer. Have you read my make-ahead smoothie cube post? It’s here if you are interested!
makes about 2-cup smoothie mixture
- 2 cups raspberries
- 1 cup green grapes
- 1/2 cup plant yogurt
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 peeled zucchini
- 2 tbsp chia powder*
- 1/4 cup water or enough to make it creamy
Blend all, pour into an ice cube tray, and freeze overnight. Blend up the cubes the next day in a high speed blender for the creamiest texture ever! Want it faster, don’t freeze first – it will still be creamy, especially if you use the veggies and chia powder.
*I use chia powder to thicken my smoothies and nicecream ever since reading @tropicallylina‘s recommendation in her new book. To make chia powder out of chia seeds, grind them in a coffee grinder, blender or food processor until they’re finely ground and store in an airtight container, in a cool, dry dark spot.
