This raspberry vanilla smoothie is the perfect recipe for my raspberry crop this year. Some years we get loads of berries from the small patch in our yard, but only if we build Fort Knox around it with chicken wire, Plexiglas, and bird netting. This year, we neglected to surround the patch with chicken wire, and the squirrels are beating us to most of the berries. We’re able to pick and handful here and there, but sadly we won’t get enough to make a big batch of raspberry jam this year.
One handful of raspberries goes a long way in this delicious smoothie. “It’s really pink!” my daughter declared. I love the combination of raspberries and vanilla, and the yogurt gives this smoothie a distinct flavor. This is a delicious, high-protein snack that I can enjoy while dreaming about what might have been if we had gotten around to building Fort Knox this year.
