One thing we are very familiar with in our family?
At the last count, we’ve moved twelve times, I think.
And every time we move, there is that last week or so where you have about two items of food left, but you REFUSE to buy anything new because you don’t want to throw away the food you already have paid good money for.
Bart is an enormous fan of this part of moving, as you can imagine.
This raspberry smoothie came about during our move from North Carolina when I wanted a smoothie for breakfast, but I was out of of most of my usual things (no spinach, no yogurt, no blueberries), and every recipe I looked at on Pinterest called for sherbet or frozen yogurt.
Not only did I not have either of those on hand, but I also draw the line at putting sherbet or frozen yogurt in my breakfast.
So I tossed in the three things I did have – bananas, frozen raspberries (left over from this puff pancake), and some coconut milk that one of Bart’s classmates brought to brunch in December and left, unopened, in our fridge.
And, to my surprise, this raspberry banana smoothie was fantastic.
In fact, I had to make second batch because my girls scarfed it down so fast.
It was definitely a moving win, although, to be honest, I prefer making it when I don’t also have to pack all my belongings into boxes.

Aaaaaaand now I know what I'm having for lunch. Looks delicious, thanks for sharing!
I make this for my daughter all the time! It too, arose out of necessity, but she loves it. Our only sub was splash of regular milk for the coconut milk.
My second child is apparently too thin (i know this sounds familiar) anyways… one of the ways we've put some weight on him we've been doing coconut milk and coconut cream smoothies. They are yummy.
Way too thick for me personally 🙁 too much banana taste and kinda grainy for my liking. If you love thick banana texture, you will love this. I just love my smoothies to be more on the refreshing side. Great recipe though overall for thick and hearty smoothie lovers!
