More About This Recipe
Here’s a secret - smoothies don’t have to be a snooze-fest!
Chocolate smoothies? Yup, that’s a possibility. How about a boozy smoothie? Also doable! With fruit, yogurt and a little imagination you can rock the smoothie like it’s never been rocked before!
Yogurt (I prefer Yoplait Greek – thick and creamy = delicious smoothie consistency)
Liquid (water, milk, juice, or alcohol if you’re feeling frisky!)
Note: You can add ice or use frozen fruit to give your smoothie that icy cold texture.
Smoothie Shots! If you’re hosting a brunch gathering, why not substitute alcohol for your liquid and serve smoothie shots! Served in miniature glasses with a cute straw, smoothie shots make for a cute party presentation! Keeping with the whole brunch theme, why not serve Mimosa Smoothie shots? I found this Blended Vanilla Mimosa Smoothie recipe and modified it a bit to make it raspberry-licious! This decadent breakfast beverage uses ice cream instead of yogurt.

Make Your Own Smoothie Bar
If you trust your friends to operate a blender (with the lid firmly ON!), create a make your own smoothie bar! Set out several varieties of fruit, yogurt, and alcohol (it is a party, after all) and tell your friends to mix and blend until their hearts content! This would be a fun activity for a “Get Skinny Party” to help hack away at those unwanted holiday lbs.!
