Sweet teeth, man. Why do they have to exist? Mine is a doozy, too. And for some reason, when summer rolls around, it goes into overdrive – all I want to eat is icy-cold sweet stuff.
So – when my willpower holds – I’ve been turning to smoothies. Cold, refreshing, and sweet to boot. Plus, they’re usually pretty healthy. So it’s a win all around.
This Raspberry Lemonade Smoothie is actually on the tart side of sweet – and I love it like that. It sort of slaps you across the mouth, but in the most pleasant way.
Well that was a totally convincing line of text, wasn’t it?
This thing is super simple, as smoothies love to be. One banana for creaminess. Some milk for good measure (I like unsweetened almond milk). Raspberries, of course. Some fresh-squeezed lemon juice. And ice to get it good and cold. (You could totally freeze the banana too, and then forgo the ice).
Now excuse me while I evil-laugh about the glorious conquering of my conniving sweet tooth. Victory. Is. Mine!
