Easy Raspberry Smoothie Recipe

Homemade smoothies are fun to make and a great way to add more fruits and vegetables to your diet. They are also one of the easiest kitchen skills to master. 

With simple ingredients like banana and raspberry, this smoothie is naturally on the sweet side without any added sugar or sweeteners. It’s also a yogurt-based smoothie, which means it has an added boost of protein. Add in the extra boost of oats and this smoothie becomes a fiber powerhouse, giving you nearly half of your recommended daily allowance.

Whether you want to call it a raspberry banana smoothie, a berry smoothie, or a breakfast smoothie, this thick and creamy smoothie is delicious. It’s a great way to start your day or get an afternoon energy boost. The best part, it’s super quick to make with either a countertop blender or an immersion blender.

What You’ll Need

This delicious raspberry smoothie has 5 ingredients that make it easy to whip up in no time. Its naturally sweet-tart flavor makes it a winner for kids and adults alike. 

  • Raspberries – Fresh raspberries are great in season, while frozen raspberries are best out of season or you like a thicker smoothie.
  • Banana – Banana adds flavor and natural sweetness and adds to the creamy texture. Fresh or frozen banana works well. 
  • Greek yogurt – Greek yogurt gives your smoothie a protein boost and helps make your smoothie thick. I like full-fat, plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt, but you can use low-fat, vanilla or honey-flavored, or plant-based alternatives.
  • Milk – Adds a bit more protein and helps to thin your smoothie to your ideal texture. Use dairy milk or any plant-based alternative you have on hand. 
  • Oats – Yes, oats. Old-fashioned oats will give you a thicker texture with a bit of chew, while instant oats will maintain a smooth creamy texture. It’s my go-to booster to keep smoothies thick when using fresh fruit.

How to Make a Raspberry Smoothie

Making a smoothie is one of the easiest kitchen skills you can master.  Simply gather your ingredients and if needed cut them into chunks your blender can process. Measure them into your blender pitcher, or jar if you’re using an immersion blender, and blend until smooth. It’s really not much more difficult than that. 

  • Grab your blender and scale. Place your jar, if using an immersion blender, or blender pitcher, if using a countertop blender, onto the scale and zero it out.
  • Measure your ingredients into the container, one at a time, zeroing out the scale between additions. 
  • Once everything is in, blend until smooth and creamy. Enjoy.

Raspberry Smoothies FAQs

Are raspberry smoothies healthy?

I’m not a dietician, but I do consider raspberries healthy and my doctor concurs. When made with dairy milk, this smoothie contains nearly half my daily need for both protein and fiber. It’s also packed with antioxidants, calcium, and the right amount of calories to start my day. Since I have no allergies or aversions to any of the ingredients, I would consider this smoothie a healthy addition to my diet.

How can I make the vegan or dairy-free?

Simply swapping the dairy milk and yogurt for your favorite plant-based versions like almond milk or coconut milk will make this smoothie vegan and dairy-free. If extra fiber is your goal, swap them for oat milk and oat milk yogurt.

Optional Smoothie Add-ins

The best part about making smoothies at home is that you can customize all of the ingredients for your own taste buds. Don’t like raspberries? Swap them for blackberries. Prefer avocado over a banana? Use that instead! Like your smoothie extra thick and cold? Use all frozen fruit. 

To make your smoothie uniquely yours, try including some of these popular add-ins.

  • Fresh leafy greens like spinach or kale.
  • Flax seeds or chia seeds.
  • Collagen powder or protein powder.
  • Spices like ginger or cardamom.
  • A splash of orange juice or lime juice.

Smoothie Storage & Serving

Most smoothies taste best when served immediately. This one, however, is a great option for making early and storing in the fridge. 

A lot of smoothie recipes rely on frozen fruit or ice cubes to give it that thick creamy texture that is perfectly cold. As they sit out they tend to thin out. This smoothie relies on Greek yogurt and oats to get its thick creamy texture. Just like in overnight oats, the oats in this smoothie are going to plump and soften as it sits in the liquid. That means you can make this smoothie at bedtime and pop it into the fridge to grab and go on your way to work in the morning.
