Raspberry, Mint and Orange Refresher
It is definitely time to forget the sugar-filled sodas and energy drinks. If you want a refreshing, energising drink, try my Raspberry, Mint and Orange Refresher! I make it with frozen raspberries, which are very convenient, available all year round, and give a cool refreshing drink. If you use fresh raspberries, it will taste the same, but you may need to add ice.
Adding a few mint leaves gives a little extra kick, which complements the raspberries, orange and yogurt deliciously.
A large glass has only 200 calories, so no problem for the calorie conscious. I never add sugar or sweeteners because I love the taste as it is, but if you can't do without a sweet taste, try adding a teaspoon of honey.
