Smoothies are the perfect way to supplement your daily portions, so without further ado, here is my latest effort!
Raspberry, Carrot & Basil Smoothie
3 cups frozen raspberries
1 handful fresh basil leaves
1 tbsp maple syrup
3 cups water
Peel and chop the carrots and apple. Add all the ingredients to a blender and whizz until smooth. If you are using fresh raspberries, you probably won’t need so much water. The frozen raspberries make the smoothie into a very thick thickie, so add the water as you need it.
This smoothie has the tartness of the raspberries and is lovely and rich. The carrots and basil are very understated, but they are there! And, what a gorgeous colour it is!
I was sneaky and passed this smoothie to Graham, pronouncing it as a raspberry smoothie. There is no way he would have considered trying it if I had listed all the ingredients. It worked a treat and he loved it! I did tell him later and I think he will be happy for me to add carrots from now on. Yay! A success!
