It’s not surprising how good a blueberry raspberry smoothie tastes since they’re both fantastic summer fruits. These two berries give this smoothie a great pinkish glow, and it tastes as good as it looks.
This smoothie is an excellent post-workout drink as it’s not only nice and cold it’s also incredibly refreshing. If you’re looking for a protein hit, then be sure to add your favorite protein powder just before you go to blend it. What I find about one tablespoon more than enough.
As with most smoothies, you can use fresh or frozen fruit depending on what’s affordable and available to you. Obviously fresh raspberries & blueberries are easier to get your hands on in the summer. However, I find that the frozen fruits still work just as good as fresh and they’re usually available all year round.
There are a ton of health benefits to both blueberries and raspberries making this smoothie surprisingly healthy for you. If you leave the honey out and opt for healthier variations of dairy, then this would be a super healthy smoothie.

Blueberry Raspberry Smoothie Recipe
- ½ cup raspberries
- ½ cup blueberries
- ½ cup plain yogurt

- As I mention in all the smoothie recipes, you can add ice if you would like to. You will find that ½ cup should be more than enough to thicken this smoothie up. It will also become extra chilled for anyone who loves an icy drink.
- The honey can be left out if you prefer your smoothie to be a bit less sweet. It’s also important to note that if you use low-fat milk and yogurt, these may have added sugar.
- As with basically any smoothie you make it’s best to make it as fresh as possible. If you keep it in the fridge, you will find that it will only last a few days. If you do have some leftover, you can freeze it down in an ice-cube tray and merely blend the frozen smoothie cubes whenever you feel like a sweet cold smoothie.
