Raspberry, Blackberry & Mint Smoothie

Raspberries, Blackberries, Lemon, Mint and Coconut Water! It's fresh, delicious and very simple to make. High in vitamins and dietary fibers,  low in calories, what more could you ask for? Great whenever you need something to cool off and give you that extra little boost your body needs. 
Mint Berry Delight 
What will you need: 
  • 1 ½ Cups Raspberries 
  • 1 ½ Cups Blackberries 
  • 300 ml Coconut Water (or Milk) 
  • 10 Fresh Mint Leaves (I love mint, put less if so desired) 
  • 2 Tbsp Protein Powder (Optional) 
  • ½ Lemon (Juice) 
All that color goodness just for you! 
Freeze your berries overnight
  • Blend the raspberries and blackberries (I always freeze mine overnight, instead of adding ice to my smoothies) with the mint leaves, lemon juice and then the coconut water and blend until smooth
  • Add the protein powder if you would like your smoothie slightly thicker or to act as a meal replacement (I prefer to use a berry flavored protein powder in this case) and blend some more 
Blend Blend Blend 

If you would like a creamier consistency, half the coconut water with either coconut milk or cream. 

Let me know in the comments your take on this smoothie, and tag me in your Instagram or Twitter posts @cocomllechloe, I'd love to see what you all come up with. 

Happy Cooking,
