Easy Raspberry Smoothie Recipe

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 tangy flavor. Add in the extra boost of thickening oats and this smoothie becomes a powerhouse of thick, creamy, sweet, and tangy deliciousness.

Whether you call it a raspberry banana smoothie, a berry smoothie, or a breakfast smoothie, this thick and creamy smoothie is super duper delicious. It’s a great way to start your day or get an afternoon boost. The best part, it’s 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. While I recommend using fresh fruit in this smoothie and relying on the thickening power of raw oats, you can easily use frozen fruit instead.

Featured Ingredient: Oats

While this may be called a raspberry smoothie, the most important ingredient in this recipe is the oats. They act as a thickener and when combined with Greek yogurt, they can give your fresh fruit smoothie the same thickness as a frozen fruit smoothie!

While rolled or old-fashioned oats will give you a thicker texture and a bit of chew, instant oats will maintain a smoother, creamier texture. The choice of which type of oats to use is yours alone.

Personally, I like the results better with instant oats. However, rolled oats are the type that I use when making my strawberry rhubarb crisp, hazelnut granola, or overnight oats. In other words, I’m more likely to have rolled oats in my pantry.

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. 

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 since it relies on the oats to help thicken it. 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.
