Healthy Drink Recipe Boozy Raspberries

Boozy Raspberries

It’s hard to believe that anything tasting this good can be so healthy. But trust me: it’s true. Summer or winter, this smoothie will give your immune system a massive boost, and it’s just as nice and effective made with frozen fruit.

If you are using frozen raspberries, let them thaw a bit so they’re just softening before you whizz them. Vitamin C and other protective nutrients in the raspberries are complemented by the beneficial bacteria in the live yoghurt.

The vibrant colour from the blackcurrant liqueur makes it look as good as it tastes.

Vital statistics

Raspberries are a fairly good source of immune-boosting vitamin C and also have a very high ORAC score. Just 100g provide 1,220 ORACs – almost as much as the average UK resident gets from his or her total food intake in a day. It’s this amazing antioxidant factor, together with the immune-boosting probiotic bacteria from the yoghurt, that supplies the huge immunity charge in every portion.
