You have to try this Rich & Creamy Red Velvet Smoothie recipe, oh my goodness! Summertime is absolutely smoothie weather, and this recipe just hits the mark every time. Just imagine the smooth, rich, and velvety flavour of red velvet cake, but as a smoothie! So, technically, we can have cake for breakfast? Chock full of raspberries, cocoa powder, and a whole lot of goodness, you can’t help but resist whipping up a glass of this over the weekend!
I am a smoothie-a-holic. Love them. They’re a super easy thing to make as a snack or for breakfast, but my latest love is this Rich & Creamy Red Velvet Smoothie. Whenever I have old bananas that need eating now, I’m gonna reduce my food waste and make this recipe. Honestly, this recipe is super duper simple and that’s why I love it so much! Just bung your leftover bananas, a bunch of raspberries, choice of extras (I ALWAYS go for chia seeds and a big scoop of nut butter) into a blender and voila!
For my produce, I absolutely adore using Riverford Organic Farmers. I’ve been using their services for a couple of months now and have been absolutely loving every single thing I’ve ordered. The great thing about buying organic food is that you KNOW it’s better for the environment. And, by using a veg box system, all your fruits and vegetables are ready and waiting at your door, so there’s no need to go to the supermarket.
So, without further ado…
First you’re gonna want to add all of your ingredients to a highspeed blender. I use a Magimix and it works for me every single time. To this particular smoothie, I added 100% almond butter, chia seeds, hemp seeds, cocoa powder, maca powder, and a splash of unsweetened oat milk. When it comes to micronutrients, I love adding mushroom powders, maca powder, and a bunch of other stuff to my smoothies. You can read more about why I love maca so much in this recipe.
Once you’ve choses all that you’re going to add to your smoothie, the next step is to simply blend it all up! Make sure that no lumps are left, so you can enjoy the most creamy smooth and rich Red Velvet Smoothie possible. Pour into your favourite glass, sprinkle on some more raspberries, and you’ve got yourself the perfect summertime treat.
