Valentine’s day is approaching, and inspiring me to favor anything that’s pink or red or leaning towards one of these two colors.
I added some beautiful frozen red raspberries to my morning smoothie, combining them with frozen blueberries, tangy lime juice, and refreshing green mint leaves. The result was a beautiful maroon concoction full of antioxidants.
This drink is delicious and energizing; in other words, it’s the perfect smoothie to blend up before stepping out the door for a busy day.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and happy cooking!
It's Almost Valentine's Day Maroon Antioxidant Smoothie
After you blend the smoothie, adjust the lime, mint, and sweetener of your choice to taste.
-1 cup frozen blueberries
-1/3 cup frozen raspberries
-3 or 4 fresh mint leaves. Since mint leaves vary in size, I would just have a small bunch on hand, so that you can adjust the mint to your taste
-1 tablespoon of lime juice
-1/2 cup of water
-1 to 2 teaspoons Stevia or sweetener of choice
- Blend the frozen blueberries, raspberries, lime juice, water, mint, and sweetener in a blender.
- Taste your creation and adjust the sweetener and acidity to your taste.
