Raspberry, Banana, and Dark Chocolate Chip Sweetheart Smoothie

Hi Uncommon Design readers, My name is Audra, and I currently blog over at Cherished Bliss along with my sister, Ashley. For the past two years I have been the sole voice behind Once a Mom, Always a Cook where my primary focus has always been creating family recipes. At Cherished Bliss, my plan is to continue sharing old family recipes and new favorites that I pick up along the way. We would be delighted for you to stop by and visit anytime! Today I am honored to share a fun recipe for a Raspberry, Banana, and Dark Chocolate Chip Sweetheart Smoothie. This smoothie is a perfect treat for Valentine’s Day! It can be made for a yummy breakfast, an after school treat, or a healthy dessert option. Whatever time of day you choose to indulge in this Sweetheart Smoothie is a great time.

Not only is this smoothie fun, but very healthy. Raspberries are a great source of Vitamin K and Magnesium, and is a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, and Manganese. Bananas are a wonderful source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C. Bananas are also known for their great source in Potassium and Manganese, and have a great source of Vitamin B6 as well. Dark Chocolate Chocolate has added benefits of a good source of Iron, Copper and Manganese and of course amazing antioxidants. With all the wonderful nutrients of this smoothie I didn’t want to add any refined sugar, so I chose to sweeten this treat with coconut sugar. Coconut Sugar is a nice replacement for white sugar with added benefits. With all types of sugars, refined or not, moderation is always recommend. I know you are ready for the recipe so let’s get started!

    This inspired me to make a smoothie tonight. I just happened to have fresh raspberries in the frig. I just used ice, milk, raspberries, a little Splenda and some vanilla. It was incredible. Thanks for the post. I love the straws too.
