Raspberry Coconut Smoothie (dairy-free, vegan)

This healthy and naturally sweetened raspberry coconut smoothie is dairy-free and vegan with the help of some coconut milk!

Raspberry Coconut Smoothie – naturally dairy-free and vegan! From texanerin.com

I’m all about smoothies right now. I’m sure I’ve whined about this before, but it feels like there are only apples, oranges and bananas over here during the winter. And as someone who struggles to eat veggies, I need my fruit! Luckily, frozen raspberries are super cheap over here so I go through about two pounds of them every week throughout the year, except for those few precious weeks when we have fresh berries.

Mr. Texanerin surprised me with two fresh coconuts right before Christmas. They turned out to be such pretty props that I’ve been making coconut everything! I was kind of shocked much I loved the raspberry coconut combination in these gluten-free raspberry coconut oat macaroons that I thought I’d give it another try.

To make this raspberry coconut smoothie creamy, you can either use banana or avocado. If you use banana, the flavor will be really apparent and the smoothie will be naturally sweet. If you use avocado, you won’t taste any avocado but you’ll need to add some sweetener!

I’m getting a little tired of bananas so I went with avocado this time. I added a few drops of Stevia but you could add honey, agave, granulated sugar… whatever you want!

I added coconut butter to add some intense, creamy coconut flavor. I like my smoothie to be completely smooth and so shredded coconut wasn’t going to happen. If you don’t have coconut butter, don’t bother buying it just for this smoothie. Make your own homemade coconut butter! Or leave it out and add shredded coconut or a little coconut extract.

This raspberry coconut smoothie is also naturally dairy-free and vegan! No yogurt is needed. I used canned coconut milk instead of regular milk.

If you want a non-coconut version of this smoothie, check out this raspberry banana avocado smoothie! I’m fully aware that the pictures look almost exactly the same. I just happen to love pink smoothies on a black background. ;)

    Just made this but instead of coconut milk I used apple juice and instead of raspberries, I used blueberries. Very good and the kids liked it, too, :)

    A lovely smoothie Erin. When I saw those pictures, I just had to make it. Mine was a bit more really red though, but delicious!

      MORE red? Well that’s nice! Red is better than green, right? ;) Thanks a ton for the feedback!

    Erin, this looks amazing! So are the photos actually the variation with avocado? It sounds like it, but I’m just in awe that the raspberry masked the avocado SO well. Will have to trial.

      Yup! Check out the last picture. The one of the raspberry banana avocado smoothie. That one is even pinker! :) For whatever reason, when you mix raspberry and avocado together (notice, though, that I only used 1/4 – 1/2 avocado) the outcome is pink, and the white coconut milk makes it even a nicer color! I hope you’ll like the smoothie! :)

    Gosh, this smoothie looks delicious. I will definitely be trying this recipe! It reminds me of a little piece of summer during these chilly, icy, snowy winter months. Also, the color is just beautiful!

    Do you know that it was impossible for me to find frozen raspberries in Barcelona? This is crazy. I wanted to bake scones and I couldn’t. I need my fruits as well. Will be so nice to have blender again and mix different ones into smoothie.

      What?! What kind of fruit are you eating then? Tons of oranges? I wish I had enough fresh fruit around to not drink smoothies constantly!
