Raspberry Zinger Smoothie
Updated: Oct 2
Kickstart your day with a burst of fruity goodness! This refreshing raspberry smoothie recipe is like liquid summer. The best smoothie recipes for blood sugar control and weight management contain some protein and a small amount of healthy fats, to keep you fuller for longer.
Preparing your smoothie ingredients in advance and having them ready to use in the freezer not only protects the nutrients, but it's also a great time saver!
I normally use protein powder or hemp seeds for the protein element and the chia seeds in this raspberry smoothie recipe contain healthy fats. If you don't have any chia seeds you could use any other seed mix or a tablespoon of almond butter. Cauliflower is an unusual addition but I think you'll be surprised at how good it tastes!
Studies show fibre rich fruit and vegetables can lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes.
Raspberries are part of the rose family. There are different colours of raspberry, but red is the most common variety. They are a great source of fibre and nutrients such as vitamin C which is an anti-inflammatory antioxidant essential for iron absorption and immune function.
Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable high in fibre which is good for gut health, low in carbs and rich in nutrients such as choline and vitamin C. It contains many beneficial compounds such as antioxidants which fight inflammation and reduce the risk of chronic disease.
