If you’re looking for a super easy yet tasty smoothie snack to enjoy before a workout, this one is perfectly delicious. It’s creamy and thick, which is quite satisfying and filling without being heavy. The sweet and tanginess of the raspberry combined with greek yogurt is delightful – no need to pay $8 for a frozen yogurt cup! We prefer to use milk substitutes to cut back on dairy, but of course you can use cow’s milk if you prefer. This quick pre-workout snack CAN be made in a regular blender, but if you have a Blendtec or Vitamix blender you can more easily pulverize those tiny berry seeds! Make sure to subscribe for more delicious pre and post workout smoothies and snacks!

One of the most fascinating new areas of raspberry research involves the potential for raspberries to improve management of obesity. Although this research is in its early stages, scientists now know that metabolism in our fat cells can be increased by phytonutrients found in raspberries, especially rheosmin (also called raspberry ketone). By increasing enzyme activity, oxygen consumption, and heat production in certain types of fat cells, raspberry phytonutrients like rheosmin may be able to decrease risk of obesity as well as risk of fatty liver. In addition to these benefits, rheosmin can decrease activity of a fat-digesting enzyme released by our pancreas called pancreatic lipase. This decrease in enzyme activity may result in less digestion and absorption of fat. (Source: WHFoods)
