Raspberry Candy Cane Swirl

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

This smoothie is a fun way to celebrate the season! You can dress it up even more with fresh mint leaves. Almond milk, dates and white chia seeds give this a creamy texture without any dairy or sugar. Enjoy it as a swirl or you could also make a pink-and-cream layered smoothie by simply adding a vanilla layer to your glass then pink then vanilla then pink again. Storing it in the freezer to chill can also help to hold the layers if you plan to serve them at a party.
