This raw vegan banana raspberry smoothie is a quick and delicious way to use up a summer bounty of fresh raspberries.

Over summer, I took the kids berry picking at an organic berry farm about 90 minutes south east of Melbourne.

I had two reasons for wanting to do this.

Firstly I really wanted our suburban kids to see first-hand where their food comes from and how it’s grown.

Being mostly vegan means there’s not much point in taking them to a dairy farm, or a chicken farm, because we don’t eat those things.

So a “u-pick” berry farm was the perfect answer.

And I wanted an organic one so that they could see a farm that worked more closely with nature to grow its food.

Secondly, I wanted to revisit my past.

My first job in high school was picking berries for a local farm over the summer holidays.

It was boring as boring gets, and I found many creative ways to stop myself going insane while I worked.

I also didn’t work fast enough to earn much, but it was work, and the money was worth every cent.

But I really liked the idea of doing it this time for fun instead.

In fact, I had so much fun doing it that we picked over 5 kilograms of berries, including more than 3 kilos of raspberries.

So of course I had to find ways to use them up.

I could have frozen them, I know, but they were SO delicious fresh that I couldn’t bring myself to freeze any.

Instead I spent the next week eating raspberries for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

And, boy, was that fun!

An experience of pure abundance.

So many raspberries that I just HAD to eat before they spoiled, so there was no holding back.

And so this banana raspberry smoothie was born.

So if you are blessed with an abundance of fresh raspberries this summer, or you just LOVE your raspberries, this is one awesome way to enjoy them.

With just four ingredients, plus some water, this banana raspberry smoothie is super easy to make, and even easier to drink.

Sweet and creamy with just the right amount of tang from the raspberries.

Mmmmmmm.

Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

And now I just have to wait for summer so we can do it all over again.

Enjoy!
