Secret Recipe Club: Raspberry Lemonade Smoothie

Check out my awesome stein I got from the Warrior Dash Race I did a couple weeks ago!
It's that time of the month again - Secret Recipe Club time!

I'm glad to say that I got a fellow Kentucky Food Blogger - Katie from This Chick Cooks!

She's got a plethora of healthy, feel-good eats.  We've been experiencing a major heat wave here and I haven't been in the mood to turn the stove, oven, or microwave on for anything!  My older neighbor even said that she's been living on popsicles to stay cool!  I haven't gone that crazy, but who knows - if this heat keeps up - I'll be sitting on the porch eating popsicles 24/7 before you know it!

Anyway, Katie has tons of different smoothies on her site - and with this heat, a cool smoothie sounded like the perfect treat!  With everything I needed already, I couldn't resist =)

Ingredients:
Recipe from This Chick Cooks

handful of ice (about 5-7 cubes)
1/2 cup raspberries (I used fresh, Katie used frozen)
1/3 cup water
juice from 1 lemon
2 teaspoons honey

Combine ice, raspberries, water, lemon juice, and honey in a blender.  Puree until at desired consistency.

Drink up!

Hope you all have a great Monday and where ever you happen to be (especially in the Midwest!), I hope you're staying cool and hydrated =)

  5. It's been crazy hot here in Georgia too! I've loved all the popsicle and ice cream recipes floating around but can't get it to cool off long enough to photograph any before they melt!
