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


  • 2 cups raspberries (I used frozen, but fresh will work too)
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 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. Boy, do I NEED this! My poor blender has a hole in the metal at the base of the blade. A hole! Not even sure how that happened, but I have to figure out all sorts of innovative ways to keep my smoothies from leaking into the motor unit.
  2. I've heard nothing but good things about Blendtec, I simply want to win so that I can finally upgrade my old cheap generic blender
  3. I love the idea of freezing the leftovers in ice cube trays. I have these funky trays with tops from pureed baby food days that would be perfect for that! Do the chia seeds have to be soaked or anything before blending? I also wanted to share that I really wanted a blendtec or viatimix and it wasn't in my budget. I bought the Ninja™ Professional Blender with Single Serve Blending Cups. I love the single serve option. It's very powerful has no issue with ice and frozen fruit or greens. Love it!
  4. Thanks for the yummy recipe and contest! Hiding healthy nutrition in my little guy's food is a way of life at the moment, as he's still young and stubborn! Blend it in and all is smiles!
