Raspberry Pomegranate Smoothie

I’ve been stuck in traffic and sorting out my visa for my trip to India most of today. Just got back and felt hungry so I made myself a late lunch. A pink smoothie, for once! Very yummy:

  • 1/2 cup frozen Raspberries
  • 1/2 Pomegranate (peeled – seeds only)
  • 1/3 frozen Banana
  • 1 small Lime (juiced)
  • 1 handful of Spinach
  • 1/2 cup Almond Milk
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 tbsp dried coconut
