Food: Chocolate Raspberries Smoothie

I had  a big breakfast this morning so it wasn’t until the afternoon that I decided to make my smoothie today.  By that time I was in need of something a little (let’s be honest now, very)  indulgent.  The fact that it’s a Friday only served to amplify the feeling even more.

I started to feel a bit guilty when I topped the raspberries with raspberry yoghurt and then reached for the cocoa-powder so I decided to mix in spinach to temper the feelings.  I’m really glad I did add the spinach because it helped to mute to sweetness from the other ingredients and made for a more balanced drink in the end… plus spinach is like “super-healthy”.

Ingredients – all approximate

  • 100g Raspberries
  • A big healthy handful and a bit of Spinach
  • 1 pot (125g) raspberry youghurt
  • A teaspoon of cocoa-powder
  • 6ish ice-cubes
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon


Blitz everything in the blender except the cinnamon, which I sprinkled on top at the end.

Next time I make this one  I will probably experiment by mixing in the cinnamon with the other ingredients because it really complimented the other flavours.  I ended up mixing it all up with my straw while drinking anyway.
