This Skinny Raspberry Mint Smoothie is a refreshing drink to add to your breakfast or lunch routine. Adding frozen fruits and protein powder to a smoothie will help keep you full for longer.
It's that time of year again. Has everyone jumped on the healthy eating bandwagon yet? The first of the year tends to get everyone ready to start off with eating right and exercising.
I’m right there with you. Bring on the salads and smoothies!!!
We started an herbal cleanse and healthy eating on January 1st. Yes, we are stereotypical here, too. It is time to say bye, bye to the cupcake butt and cookie thighs I developed from enjoyed way too many holiday treats last month. My jeans want to be happy again.
Exercise hasn’t happened here yet because the kids are still on break for a few more days. But Monday morning those slam balls, kettlebells, and a rowing machine in the garage will get the dust brushed off.
I’m ready for the exercise routine to be back in place. ( I say that now...ask me after the first few days of working out)
One thing that we have been making a lot of the past week are fruit smoothies. The kids prefer just orange juice and frozen fruit in theirs, but my hubby and I love adding some protein powder and yogurt for that extra protein boost.
That extra bit of protein helps to fill you up and keep you from being hungry an hour later. This Skinny Cherry Banana Smoothie is one of my favorites, but I wanted another flavor to alternate with.
So, I grabbed a bag of frozen raspberries and some mint leaves the last time I was at the store. The fresh mint leaves just add a little bit of something different to the healthy smoothie.
There is a freshness that I really enjoyed from the leaves. Feel free to add more mint leaves or leave them out. It’s totally your call.
This particular fruit smoothie makes two small drinks or one large drink. If you are having it as a snack, share the other one with someone else or freeze the other one for later.
How to make a Skinny Raspberry Mint Smoothie
- Place all the ingredients in a large blender.
- Pulse until smooth and creamy.
- Pour into 1 large or 2 small glasses and enjoy immediately.
I like to drink the full smoothie as my lunch replacement. It’s enough that I am not hungry again until dinnertime. Then I’m ready for a bowl of Lean Mean Veggie Soup or a big Strawberry Orange Spinach Salad with chicken.

This smoothie looks lovely Jocelyn! Fruity and fresh - perfect for seeing in the New Year. I haven't made any drastic changes but am trying to limit by dessert to something less than a daily occurrence 😉
Limiting dessert is a big step toward making a change. Kudos to you for starting there!
Since you are the one who introduced me to the smoothie, I love all the new recipes you come up with. Sooo delicious, easy, and I get the protein I usually miss with my love for simple pasta dishes, so yes, definately more smoothies please!!
I am so glad you are still enjoying the smoothies. I'll make sure to share a few more!!!

I love a good smoothie! And the mint is a great addition!
I couldn't believe how much better it was with mint. I'm a big fan now!
I would gladly trade my coffee for this.
It is a little tastier than plain coffee!! You should make the switch!
A rowing machine sounds like pretty serious stuff, Jocelyn. That's crazy cardio! But very good for you. It works out all your major muscle groups. Enjoy!
And this will be a perfect recovery drink!
The rower is a great cardio blast! I read somewhere that is one of the best exercises to do for all over! Hmmmm...I should add more time on the rower to each WOD.
Good for you girl, you're starting 2016 on the right foot, and I'm so inspired! 😀 This smoothie is gorgeous and I bet it tastes as amazing as it looks. Definitely a great way to start my mornings!
Thanks, Roxana! I'm trying hard to stay motivated to move and eat right. Pretty and tasty smoothies help out!!!
