Oh my goodness this shake is delicious. You'd never know it was a vegan drink made of just frozen fruit, stevia and water. Healthified nostalgic beverages are my favourite!
This delicious smoothie/vegan shake marries the tangy creaminess of mango with the sweet ice creaminess of frozen banana, and the tart and refreshing bite of frozen raspberries. It's heaven, in a glass.
Did I mention this shake is also incredibly pretty? The mango and raspberry combo makes a beautiful orangey-pink colour that you just want to stare at all day thinking 'wow, this colour is natural?!' I love fruit smoothies almost as much for their colour as for their flavours!
I think the best thing about this drink is that it just makes you feel summery and energized -- and we can all use a bit of that as summer is on its way out, clearly! It's already getting cold here and I'm starting to recoil to my couch with every opportunity (ahem, right now).
This smoothie wasn't designed to mimic Flinstone's Push Pops, it just tastes like them by accident! I LOVED those things in the summer as a child and this smoothie took me back to happy, if sweaty, afternoons in the sunshine. Running around like a maniac, riding bikes and chasing ice cream trucks in bare feet -- this drink is just, summer.
