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.

Made this smoothie for a snack today and it was delicious! I had to use frozen raspberries, but I am looking forward to making it with fresh ones!
I’m so glad you liked it, Nancy! It works well with frozen berries too.
How pretty your smoothie looks!
We had two interesting berry seasons since we moved in and planted raspberries and a strawberry patch.
Our first full summer we protected the strawberries and peach trees with Fort Knox, and the chipmunks snagged all the strawberries–we’re assuming birds got the peaches, but we never saw. The raspberries were unprotected and we enjoyed I think every berry. This year we opted not to protect anything–and harvested bunches of strawberries and raspberries even though the chipmunk was seen, in a tree!, gobbling up some sort of inedible-to-use thing.
No peaches, though. We’ll pick those up at the farmer’s market.
Kirsten, it sounds like you’ve had better luck than we have. We’re planning to move the raspberries to a different part of the yard, so hopefully we’ll have better luck there. We planted a strawberry plant too, but the chipmunks (and/or bunnies and/or squirrels) have grabbed all of them.
Smoothie looks great. Sorry to hear about the squirrels enjoying all those berries.
Thanks, Nicky! I know there are bigger problems in the world, but I really get annoyed by those squirrels.
