Almond and Raspberry Breakfast Smoothie is the perfect way to start your excellent gluten-free, vegan morning. Start with a smoothie feast! This is the easiest, tastiest, gluten-free vegan breakfast you can imagine. Almonds and banana add great flavour and texture and the raspberries great colour and flavour (and vitamin C). The fruity lemon zing is refreshing and lifts your mood. The colour is naturally, disturbingly! It looks fantastic.
Smoothies aren’t just a great start to a day they also make a wonderful post-exercise boost. Want a different smoothie everyday?
