Get Up & Go Raspberry Smoothie (+ Recipe For Easy Vegan Raspberry Yoghurt)

Zooey, via Ffffound

 

This is an easy, anytime smoothie. Three ingredients and POW! you’re done. The sweetness of the almond milk balances the tartness of the raspberries, and the homemade yoghurt pulls it all together.

The dairy-free raspberry yoghurt is my tweak of the ‘”Anything Goes” Fruit Pudding’ from How It All Vegan.

I call my version a yoghurt because that’s exactly what it reminds me of – creamy, sweet, tangy and full of fruit flavour – it tastes just like the stuff I used to love. It’s not really yoghurt at all (for a real-deal, probiotic vegan yoghurt recipe check this out!), but it does have that refreshing, yoghurt-y tang. And it takes under 5 minutes to prepare.
