This easy, dairy free Raspberry Smoothie with Avocado and Mint can be enjoyed for breakfast or as a delicious, healthy snack anytime.
If you read my post from a few days ago you will know that wonky avocados have recently flooded the supermarkets in the UK. As a result, I have several wonky avocados ripening on my windowsill in the kitchen. I’ve been doing my best not to let them go to waste and today I am sharing my new avocado recipe – Raspberry Smoothie with Avocado and Mint.
Dairy free raspberry smoothie
This avocado smoothie recipe is dairy free. I used Alpro Coconut Almond milk alternative, which added a subtle coconut flavour to the smoothie, but without the calories of coconut milk. You can use other non-dairy alternatives if you like, such as soya milk for example.
Raspberry smoothie with avocado
Avocado is an ideal smoothie ingredient, as it provides extra nutrients, is a great natural thickener and produces a silky smooth texture. And you can’t taste it at all in this raspberry smoothie recipe! The smoothie is fruity and moderately sweet. I added 1 teaspoon of honey (use maple syrup instead if you like), but adding another wouldn’t make the smoothie overly sweet, either.
Using a bit of mint in this avocado smoothie makes it super refreshing and adds another interesting flavour element. The result is a sweet, tangy and refreshing drink. You could add lemon balm instead of the mint if you like. Lemon balm has a refreshing, subtle lemony flavour, which tastes fantastic in smoothies!
This raspberry smoothie makes a delicious easy breakfast idea as well as a refreshing, healthy snack. I used frozen rather than fresh raspberries so I was able to enjoy the smoothie straight away without having to refrigerate it first. You can keep leftovers in the fridge (ideally in an airtight container) for a few hours.
