DR. OZ SPICE IT UP HEALTHY RASPBERRY SMOOTHIE RECIPE
This Dr. Oz Spice It Up healthy raspberry smoothie is another featured Dr. Oz smoothie recipe.
You will love the sweet tartness of raspberry and light chocolate flavor plus warming spices that come together to make this dairy-free, vegan breakfast smoothie.
From Dr. Oz’s clean detox plan breakfast shakes, this vegan smoothie recipe is great if you’re looking for a low sugar healthy smoothie recipe that doesn’t use bananas, try this one out!
You’ll find that this high fiber, low calorie breakfast smoothie is satisfying and delicious, and can easily be made into a post-workout smoothie with the addition of your favorite plant based protein powder (we LOVE Vega)!
A high powered blender such as a Blendtec or Vitamix will pulverize those tiny berry seeds in this healthy raspberry smoothie, but if you have a regular blender and really HATE those seeds, you can always strain it through a nut milk bag.

BLENDER BABES RECIPE TESTER NOTES
For a sweeter shake, use the optional sweetener addition – I like dates for the added fiber.
For a post-workout protein shake or more substantial breakfast, a vanilla protein powder was a nice addition.
HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS OF STEVIA
Stevia plant is a small, sweet-leaf herb of South American origin used by the native Guarani tribes of Paraguay for centuries.
Recent scientific trials establish that this sweet-leaf herb has many health benefiting plant-derived compounds that help to control blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol, in addition to its use as a natural sweetener.
Together with the rise in demand for low-calorie food alternatives, stevia has drawn the attention of health conscious fitness lovers all over the planet.
