Greek Yogurt Raspberry Smoothie (Contains Dairy – Primal Only)

Louise | November 11

I’ve been reading about smoothies, and it seems that the word “smoothie” (meaning a smooth talking person) first appeared in print in the US around the early 1900s. However, the fruity drink didn’t become known as smoothies until around the 1960s.

I wanted my smoothie to be a bit more filling than just some frozen sugary juice, and so I experimented with adding some Greek yogurt as well as almond milk. It was quite delicious and very filling!

Note that unlike most recipes on this website, this recipe contains dairy (I created it before I gave up dairy), so if you don’t know whether you tolerate dairy or not, then try giving it up for 30 days first before trying to reintroduce it slowly (we find that even if people tolerate dairy, they typically tolerate raw or fermented dairy better).

TIP: Keep some bananas and berries frozen in your freezer for this! I don’t drink smoothies all the time, so it’s handy to have the bananas around when I do want a glass (it also means you don’t have to add ice).

Oh, and I even topped it with some more Greek yogurt 🙂

I make the same shake using homemade coconut yogurt!! it is so heavenly. I love the tartness of the yogurt and I sometimes crumble up some freezer fudge on top and drizzle with honey. simple food is the best.

    Sounds amazing – I’ll have to try making coconut yogurt soon!

Any alternatives to using bananas? I’m allergic to them and so have to be very careful with smoothies. Usually, I use mango, but was curious if you knew any other alternatives?

    For me, bananas provide a good alternative to cream/milk in the texture of the smoothie, so instead of bananas you could use another fruit and add in coconut cream to get that creamy texture. Sorry, I haven’t heard of any other better alternative.

      I shall definitely give that a try 🙂 Thanks!
