Raspberry Cream Smoothie

I have still not gone a day without using my new blender.  It is quickly becoming a kitchen necessity.  Thus far, I have mainly been using it for drinks.  It is allowing me to eat (well, drink) healthier and making for some tasty treats.

Myrna has been my smoothie tester for the last week or so.  I have been bringing them to work in a thermal mug and whenever she has been there, she has tried them.  She says this one is the best yet.

Raspberry Cream Smoothie

1 banana
3 cups of frozen raspberries
2 cups of apple juice
1/2 tablespoon of agave nectar
1/2 tablespoon of sugar
1/2 tablespoon of vanilla powder

Puree all ingredients in a blender until smooth.  I prefer frozen raspberries in the because then end up a little thicker and certainly colder.  This comes out very creamy and almost has a melted ice cream feel to it.

Mmmmm the raspberry-vanilla combo sounds delicious. If I had super cool blender (rather than a weak excuse for one), I'd probably make smoothies on a regular basis, too.

ah! looks so fresh, I would make smoothies like this too if I had a super awesome blender. For now, my magic bullet is doing pretty good.

I prefer frozen too because the fresh are so expensive that I never have toe courage of blending them...

I like that you used apple juice instead of non-dairy milk. Where do you get vanilla powder? I only know vanilla bean, vanilla liquid extract and vanilla sugar.....
