My Favorite Smoothie Recipe of the Summer

One of my favorite summer memories growing up was when my sisters and I would pick raspberries in our backyard.

Okay those are strawberries on my jumper… close enough.

Whether my mom made a recipe with what we gathered or we ate them straight out of the bucket, they were always one of my favorite summer foods. Needless to say, raspberries are nostalgic for me AND something I love to incorporate into recipes in the summer. If you’ve been following my Instagram you know that this summer I have have done my fair share of experimenting with different smoothie recipes, and as my time seems to diminish (thanks to moving, traveling, working, living, breathing…) along with our warmdays, I wanted to document my favorite and most simple smoothie recipe that anyone can whip up quickly.

I partnered up with Driscoll’s on this recipe to share this recipe with you guys, which only made perfect sense as they focus on organic produce – which I love, AND they have a couple exciting giveaway opportunities I know I would want to take advantage of! More on that below. In the meantime here is the recipe:

What I like about this recipe is that it really fills you up and keeps you full. Thanks to the fat from the avocado, it is really creamy and satisfying, while the berries are naturally sweet and have fiber that help you feel full, and the protein powder is great for breakfast or post-workout.20914319_10156162654116393_431640053012525581_n
