Raspberry Orange Smoothie

Raspberry Orange Smoothie

The name very much describes the smoothie! It’s made of raspberries, fresh orange juice, home-made yoghurt and a hint of sweetener like honey or sugar. This beverage can be had for breakfast or as a quick mid-meal-pick-me-up snack to boost the energy levels. We recommend using frozen raspberries, as it will give a slushier consistency to the smoothie.

Ingredients

  • 200 ml orange juice
  • 100 gm raspberries, frozen
  • 2 tbsp low fat, no-fat yoghurt
  • 4 tbsp sugar / honey
  • ½ cup ice cubes

Method

Step 1

Wash raspberries and cut into pieces.

Step 2

In a blender, whirl raspberries, orange juice and yoghurt. Addition of yoghurt is optional.

Step 3

Addition of sugar or honey is also optional. However, we would suggest you add them since orange and raspberry, both, have a citrusy / sour taste to them.

Step 4

Lastly, add ice cubes and blend again on low speed.

Step 5

Garnish with a slice of raspberry. Serve immediately.
