“Creamy” raspberry smoothie

This is an example of a variation on last week’s “tri-berry smoothie.” In this case I substituted soaked walnuts for the almonds, and added extra raspberries instead of the blueberries. I also happened to use a carrot and an apple instead of the previously mentioned spinach. Adding extra raspberries makes their flavor stand out. Raspberries have a stronger, slightly more tart taste than blueberries.

1 tbsp chia seeds
4 oz water
handful of soaked & dried walnuts
1 small orange
1 carrot
1 small apple
3 frozen strawberries
~1/2 cup frozen raspberries
4 ice cubes

Makes one large serving.

If you want even stronger raspberry flavor you could use more raspberries. I usually ration them a bit because they are one of the more expensive ingredients.
