This pretty pink lemon raspberry smoothie is sure to wake up your taste buds! Fresh lemon juice and zest add a punch of flavor that pairs well with the raspberry. Frozen cauliflower rice sneaks in some extra fiber and makes this smoothie so creamy.
As a busy mom who works full-time, I am all about easy breakfast options. My two go-to healthy breakfasts of late are baked banana bread oatmeal and smoothies. To keep it interesting, I am always testing out new smoothie flavor combinations and recently happened on this lemon raspberry combo that was so good I had to share!
I like to pair my morning smoothie with a cup of coffee and one of these double chocolate banana muffins smeared with a bit of peanut butter.
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Frozen Raspberries: the feature of this smoothie! I like using frozen raspberries to make a thicker smoothie.
- Frozen Cauliflower Rice: a great way to add a serving of vegetables with breakfast and you won’t taste it in this smoothie! Also, unlike greens like spinach – it won’t ruin the pretty color of this smoothie. You could also use regular frozen cauliflower, but the cauliflower rice may be easier to blend if you don’t have a high powered blender.
- Banana: adds a bit of sweetness and creaminess to this smoothie. You can use frozen banana to make a thicker smoothie.
- Soy Milk: you can use any milk that you prefer. I like soy best because it has more protein than other plant-based milks.
- Lemon: adds a punch of flavor that pairs perfectly with the raspberries!
- Protein Powder: add even more protein to this smoothie by adding a scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder.
- Seeds: Hemp seeds, flax seeds, and chia seeds are an easy way to add more plant-based protein as well as heart healthy fats to a smoothie like this one. Just add 2 tablespoons to the blender before pureeing.
- Nut butter: add 1 or 2 tablespoons of nut butter like cashew or almond to this smoothie for some extra protein and heart healthy fat.

Lemon Raspberry Smoothie
- 1 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen cauliflower rice
- 1 cup plain, unsweetened soy milk
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- Zest from 1/2 lemon
- 1 scoop vegan protein powder (optional)
- Add all the ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth. Serve immediately in a tall glass.
- Adjust sweetness to taste: The combination of banana and raspberry adds lots of natural sweetness to this smoothie. If you feel like you need more sweetness, add up to 1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave.
- Adjust thickness: I like a really thick and frosty smoothie so I use both frozen raspberry and cauliflower rice. Use fresh fruit if you want a thinner smoothie. Smoothie too thick? Add more milk to thin it out as you puree it.
