Today I’m sharing a delicious pink smoothie that celebrates Cooking for a Cure, and Breast Cancer Awareness.  With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, me and several other bloggers are joining together to create some amazing pink foods.

My Raspberry Almond Chia Smoothie is the perfect way to start your day.  Its easy to make, totally delicious, and is loaded with protein and calcium.  I make this smoothie with plain Greek yogurt, almond milk, and almonds which gives it nearly 10 grams of protein.  I also added  some chia seeds, which are an amazing super-food.  They’re loaded with lots of great nutrients including fiber, protein and the good-for-you Omega-3’s.

The raspberries in this smoothie are fantastic!  I was able to score some fresh raspberries at the grocery store, but using frozen is just as good.  Frozen raspberries are available year-round in the frozen food section, and a bit more economical as well.  They also add that gorgeous pink color to the smoothie.

I top off the smoothie with some additional chopped almonds, which along with the chia seeds, gives the smoothie a nice crunch.  The texture is fantastic, and you could easily eat this smoothie with a spoon.  It’s thick, creamy and completely delicious!

This smoothie is not only pretty, its loaded with protein and calcium and packed with flavor. The perfect breakfast to start your day!

 

This smoothie is the perfect go-to breakfast when you’re mornings are rushed and you need to get out the door.  It takes just a couple minutes to throw together in the blender.  Pour it into a to-go-cup, add a straw, and your on your way.  I don’t particularly like to eat in my car, but when I have to, this smoothie is a great way to go.

 

Here’s how easily this smoothie comes together:

  • ⅔ c. frozen raspberries
  • ¼ c. almonds, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. honey

This October lets remember those mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and friends who are struggling with a diagnosis of Breast Cancer.  Lets bring awareness to the disease, along with the awareness of mammograms and self-exams.  Working together, a cure can be attained within our lifetime.

Enjoy!  ~Erin
