Raspberry Almond Chia Smoothie – the very best Raspberry Smoothie Recipe!

On any given weekday, what will you typically have for breakfast? Do you have time for breakfast? Is it a challenge to eat something healthy, while also trying to wrangle kids and get them out the door for school? Do you have a long commute where stopping at your local fast food place seems like the best option for breakfast? I’m here to tell you that this Raspberry Smoothie recipe is here to save you!!

My Raspberry Almond Chia Smoothie is the perfect way to start your day.  Made with real ingredients like raspberries, almonds, chia seeds and yogurt, you’ll have protein to fuel your body first thing in the morning. It’s such a better option than anything that you can get from a drive-thru window, and your body will feel so much better.

How this Raspberry Smoothie recipe is made:

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.  The chia seeds are an amazing super-food and 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.

Topping your Raspberry Almond 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! You can pour this smoothie in a to-go cup and enjoy on the way to work. In just minute or two you can blend up this delicious smoothie, and be out the door with a healthy breakfast in-hand!

If you want to prep your Raspberry Almond smoothie ingredients in advance for an even quicker breakfast, here’s what you can do:

  • For the yogurt & honey, stir together and then spoon into an ice-cube tray and freeze. Two tablespoons will typically fit into a standard cube, so I would place 5 frozen yogurt & honey cubes into a bag.
  • Add the raspberries, almonds and chia seeds into the bag as well.
  • Leave the milk out (unfrozen), as you will need it to be in liquid form for blending. You may need to add extra milk, as the extra frozen ingredients will make the smoothie very thick.

I hope this recipe has inspired you to have a healthy start to your day. Something as simple as a smoothie can really kick-start your day. It will help you feel better, fuller and you might even feel happier given the fact that you made a great choice for yourself. Enjoy! ~Erin
