Raspberry Nut Butter Smoothie


I created this smoothie on a whim one morning, and it has become my all-time favorite "go-to" smoothie.  Sometimes I'll substitute another tart fruit like cherries or blackberries, but there's something about the dark pink color that makes this winner (especially with the kids). 

Get ready for a tart and tangy pop of flavor, with a creamy and thick texture, full of nutrition and wholesome ingredients. 

For added kicks, make it a smoothie bowl and top it with fresh (or frozen) fruit, toasted coconut flakes, chia seeds, or cacao nibs - whatever suits your fancy!
