Raspberry Coconut Smoothie

It’s giveaway time again.  I know many of my recipes require a blender, so I wanted to be able to give you an opportunity to win one.  I contacted Blendtec and they gave me a Blendtec blender to review and another to give away.  This blender is awesome.  I especially love how wide the pitcher is.  Makes for very easy cleaning.  I whipped up this smoothie in no time at all.  In fact, there are set modes on the blender so you can just press a button and walk away.  Great for all us moms out there who are trying to keep up with the kids as we cook.


The Blendtec blender available for giveaway is their Black Designer Series + a Twister Jar.  A $570 value to one lucky reader!  Contest is open to US and Canada residents only.

Not only have I made this smoothie with it, but I have also used it to grind oats into flour, and make soup.  It handled every job beautifully.  The twister jar is great because it can tackle the smaller jobs like hummus and almond butter.

Raspberry Coconut Smoothie

Prep Time 5 min

  • 4 T coconut butter (shredded coconut work work too)
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 T chia seeds


  1. Throw all ingredients in the blender and blend for about 60-90 seconds. 
  2. With the Blendtec, you just hit the smoothie button and it does the rest.


Recipe Notes

If you plan on drinking 1 serving and saving the rest, pour the remaining smoothie into ice cube trays and freeze for quick blending on another day. Enjoy!

  1. As a student at a performing arts academy, I spend a lot of time on my health for my job and smoothie making is a big part of that. I start my day off with one and its the easiest thing to keep me going for a long day. This blender looks amazing and I hope to win it :)
  2. I *love* my morning smoothies. I can't imagine life without them now. I started making them in January this year and have been using a small Ninja. I have to mix the greens and liquid, then add an apple and mix, then add the banana and mix. Would be awesome to just drop everything in at once and let it spin!
  3. Trying to get healthier and have a lot of weight to lose and am looking for the best and healthiest way to do it and this would be awesome!
  4. When I met my husband, he had a blender he got from his mom, who bought them with Green Stamps.He had it awhile. Then we got married and put his up as a second.Years ago the one broke so we started using the second. After at least 25 yrs.+ the old girl only runs on one setting. Still works. Boy, that Blendtec sounds like it will last for awhile.
  5. As a family of 4, consisting of a diabetic daddy and a hypothyroid mama, we juice and smoothie for health! As a new mommy that lost her job, funds are low but we smoothie with an Oster blender we bought from a garage sale. Winning this would be a blessing!
  6. I would love to win because we really need a new blender and I am sick of spending money on cheap disposable blenders that only last 6 months to a year!
