Simple Raspberry Smoothie

The authors of the incredibly popular Green Kitchen Stories blog have released an inspiring book of juices and smoothieswhich includes this bright and fresh raspberry number.

Serves: 1–2


1½ cups frozen raspberries
4–5 soft dates, pitted
2 tablespoons desiccated coconut, unsweetened
1 cup plain unsweetened yoghurt (for a vegan alternative use coconut yoghurt)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ cup filtered water, if needed

This is one of our ultimate go-to smoothies as the ingredients are basic and no superfoods are required. It looks pretty and tastes great, with a fresh raspberry and yoghurt flavour with a zing of lemon and a touch of sweetness from the dates and coconut.


Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blend on a high speed until completely smooth. Depending on the strength of your blender, you may need to add a little water.

Taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding more dates if necessary.

Pour into two medium-sized glass jars or a large one (as featured in the photo) and serve.
