I actually made this recipe about six months ago and froze it. It was the perfect meal to have for a quick brunch when I returned from BlogHer and didn’t have any fresh foods in the house. It was so simple to pull this out of the freezer and serve. I also think this would be excellent in a foodsaver “pop” created like the Homemade Yogurt Tubes. Our kids really love the fruit-only frozen tubes, especially when they’re sick and this would be a great, easy (and cheaper) way to make them at home.
Raspberry Kiwi Smoothie
Adapted from Raspberry Kiwi Smoothie
- 1.25 cups fresh raspberries, frozen (use flash freezing method)
- 1 cups blueberries, frozen (use flash freezing method)
- 1.5 cups cranberry juice
- 2/3 cups coconut milk
- 12 ice cubes
- 2 tablespoons ginger, fresh, grated
- 1 banana
- 6 kiwis, peeled
Blend all ingredients except kiwi and banana. When smooth, add in fresh fruit. Blend lightly and serve. I actually blended it all together without the ice cubes and froze it. Upon thawing, I intended to add the cubes, but liked the rich flavor without and kept it that way. I imagine both ways are tasty though.
This was absolutely delicious. I though the kids might think it too strong, so I thinned theirs down a bit. So, of course, they preferred the un-thinned version and ended up sharing my glass. This makes an excellent breakfast or snack.
