RASPBERRY ROSE SMOOTHIE

Laura’s blog, The First Mess, was one of the first to share how satisfying plant-based food can be. And it's one that we've consistently relied on, especially when looking to recreate classic, comfort-based dishes. On today’s menu, her Raspberry Rose Smoothie featuring The Light Ray, our jammy skin boosting tincture made in partnership with our friends at Wooden Spoon Herbs, reveals radiance and luminosity from the inside-out. Marrying layers of rich coconut and tangy fresh raspberries, this skin-loving treat is a delicious way to incorporate the power of plants into your day.

RASPBERRY ROSE SMOOTHIE

A few things to consider. The best coconut milk yogurts usually just contain coconut milk, coconut meat and probiotics as ingredients. Also, I like to soak my goji berries ahead of time, until they plump up, because it helps them blend into the smoothie a bit better. Lastly, If you don’t like bananas in smoothies, I recommend freezing some coconut or other non-dairy milk in an ice cube tray and using an equal amount of the frozen cubes for that frothy texture.
