Recipe: Raspberry Tahini Smoothie

IMG_20160418_113727

This was one interesting combination of flavors!  It took me a few drinks, but I quickly fell in love with the bursting lemony goodness.  This smoothie is full of fiber and antioxidants, and I used it late morning today when I started feeling low on energy instead of going for another cup of coffee.  It did the trick, and I felt way better than I usually do when I drink coffee.  Win Win!

This one is also from the Whole Food Energy book by Elise Museles.

Pretty in Pink Raspberry Tahini Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 banana, sliced and frozen
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 Tbsp. tahini
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

Add all ingredients to your Vitamix or other high powered blender and mix.  Note:  I used a banana right off the counter top because there were already frozen raspberries included.
