This raspberry banana smoothie is my go-to breakfast daily. It’s creamy, healthy, and sweet. Made with just a few ingredients including raspberries, banana, hemp seeds, spinach, and nut milk. Also, it’s loaded with protein, antioxidants, fiber, iron, and omega fatty acids.
I’ve been drinking smoothies on the regular for about two years now. If you like easy smoothie recipes, try my banana avocado smoothie, grapefruit strawberry apple smoothie, or my mixed berry smoothie recipe. for breakfast or meal replacement.
As an entrepreneur, I work 7 days a week. My schedule is very busy and I don’t always have time to make delicious healthy meals. To eat healthier I started meal prepping. Meal prepping has become a lifesaver. For example, I buy groceries, chop, and store everything in reusable bags and glass containers.

Raspberry Banana Smoothie Ingredients
- Frozen raspberries: I typically buy frozen organic raspberries when possible. Also, raspberries are a good source of vitamin C and fiber.
- Frozen banana: I love adding bananas to smoothies are they are a natural sweetener. Also, bananas have so many benefits including being rich in fiber, great for digestion, and helping to moderate your blood sugar levels.
- Hemp seeds provide 10 grams of protein, 12 grams of omegas 3 & 6, and 4 grams of iron. I love the rich nutty taste hemp seeds add to smoothies and whatever you add them to.
- Almond milk: Rich in protein and fiber. Adds some creaminess to the smoothie.
- Greens: add greens of your choice to smoothies. I use whatever greens I have on hand which typically include mixed herb greens or spinach.
Smoothie Tip: to get that creamy smoothie texture I chop my fruit + greens (strawberries, raspberries, bananas, and spinach) and put them in bags, and store them in the freezer. Also, storing your produce in the freezer helps it last longer.

Banana Berry Smoothie Q&A

Added sweeteners, fruit juice, fat-free flavored yogurt, ice cream, sherbet, frozen yogurt, and canned fruit.
What to Put in Smoothies
There are a variety of ingredients to add to your smoothie. I’ve listed some of my favorite add-ins below.
- Chia seeds
- Flax seeds
- Turmeric (fresh or ground)
- Hemp hearts
- Maca powder
- Ginger (fresh or ground)
- Plant-based protein powder
- Apples, blueberries, strawberries, avocado & mango
How To Store Smoothies For Later
- Store your smoothie in a glass container with an airtight lid.
- Fill the container to the very top to prevent air from being trapped in the container. Trapped air inside the container will oxidize the nutrients in your smoothie (oxidizing degrades the nutrients in your smoothie, making it less nutritious).
- Seal the container tightly and store the smoothie in the refrigerator.
- Tip: Add lemon juice to your smoothie. The extra vitamin C will help prevent oxidation.
How long will a smoothie last in the refrigerator
A smoothie will last up to 24 hours if stored properly in the refrigerator. However, use your best judgment. If it looks or smells off, then don’t drink it.
