Raspberry-Lemonade Fizz Smoothie
This smoothie is light, refreshing, and effervescent. It relies on just a few simple ingredients, but don't judge a smoothie's nutritional prowess by the size of its ingredient list. One serving (i.e., 1/2 the recipe) of this raspberry lemonade fizz smoothie packs 112% daily value of vitamin c, 4 grams of plant-based protein, 18 grams of dietary fiber, and 20% daily value of potassium. Since it's naturally sweetened with fiber-rich dates, this smoothie provides a slow, sustained energy boost. Dates are also rich with potassium—containing 50% more potassium by weight than bananas—so this smoothie naturally assists in post-workout muscle recovery, too.
Servings: 2 (12-ounce) smoothies
- 2 cups frozen raspberries (about 12 ounces)
- 1 cup filtered water
- 4 pitted Natural Delights Medjool dates or to taste*
- 1–2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, to taste
- 1/2 to 1 cup sparkling water, to taste
In a high-speed blender, combine the raspberries, filtered water, dates, and lemon juice, and blend on high until completely smooth.
Divide the smoothie between two glasses.
Top each with sparkling water, to taste, and gently stir to combine.
