Raspberry Smoothie

Valentine's Day is around the corner, and what is more apt to share than something that visually resonates with such a romantic day!  There is nothing much to write about a smoothie, other than it is both visually and gastronomically satisfying.  It's not a drink, it's not an ice-cream, and yet it is all those things wrapped into one.  Don't forget it can be nutritious for you too! Wonderful! Yep! That's what it is!

I absolutely love this pink color!  Okay, it may not be so appealing on a wintry day, but somewhere on the other side of the globe this is still welcomed, I am sure. It is definitely reminiscent of a hot, sultry Sunday afternoon, when you can lounge on you chair, in the veranda, sipping your smoothie which will fan you cool.  Melting ice-creamy moments!

But in winter, when you want to try this, and have a toddler in the premise, you have to sneak it!  If he gets hold of it, then proceed days of sore throat, and we-cannot-talk-about-it kind of issues to deal with.  But, if you are a raspberry lover like me, I can give you all kinds of ways to sneak around the kids and enjoy it.  Drop me an email, I will be glad to enlighten you ;)  I know this sounds like marketing but hey, sometimes what else is Valentine’s Day too? For raspberry lovers, it's not about seasons - these drinks can be so addictive they will be a way of life. Like for people in love, it does not matter if Valentines Day maybe a commercial gimmick, it’s a celebration of love!
