Raspberry and Almond Smoothie Recipe
Raspberries are an excellent source of vitamin C which is also a powerful natural antioxidant.

They are also rich in B-complex and vitamin K, niacin, riboflavin, and folic acid. These vitamins function as co-factors and help body in the metabolism of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. So have been linked to weight management.
Almond milk contains ground almonds and water. It’s a healthy alternative to cow’s milk, and contains more vitamins and minerals (vitamin E, A and D, manganese, selenium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, fiber, phosphorous and calcium) than soy or rice milks.
