Finally it’s Friday – YAY. I have the perfect, cooling down drink, especially if you are  under exam pressure in hot weather. Or just fancy a delicious, fruit packed drink at the end of a long week. Let me introduce you to my Raspberry Banana Ice Cream Smoothies!

Only 4 ingredients are needed to make this yummy, thick, ice cream smoothie. I made these for us last night, after the children had finished another long, hot day, at school, sitting exams. They absolutely loved them, as did I – obviously I have to check what I make just to ensure it tastes good/won’t poison them/cos I wanted to!!!!!

These really are delicious, using frozen raspberries is much cheaper, however if you have an abundance of fresh berries, by all means use them.

While they may not be super ‘healthy’ matcha tea green smoothies, they are packed with fruit. Since eating and drinking is all about balance I have no problem making these as an occasional treat. Especially when the weather is as hot as it is today!

Since I am already thinking of other flavour combinations, I’d love to hear your ideas?

  1. Thank you for stopping by-this looks delicious. I love the pink shade. Raspberries have the prettiest colour when blended.
