For Fresh Friday this week it’s back to berries and bananas for me in my smoothie. It has been a long week. My son (Age 2) is now going on his 4th week of illness (Ear infections BEGONE!). The result has been an overtired Mommy, Daddy, and kids and a lot of grumpiness. In need of an energy boost to get me through the day I decided to create this Raspberry Go Go Smoothie because this week it has been a challenge to keep my motivation up (I think the time change is not helping either-I hate it when it is dark by 4:30!).
For this smoothie I decided to use two of my favorite fruits-Mango-go-go and raspberries for their bright tart flavors. I stuck to my usual base for the smoothie of bananas and low-fat Stonyfield Organic Milk and added in some Tera’s Organic Fair Trade Chocolate Whey Protein for sustained energy. Topping the smoothie off with ice and then whirling all of the ingredients up in the blender resulted in a bright almost ice cream like smoothie that filled my belly and lifted my mood.
I hope you will give it a try!
