The perfect combination of raspberry smoothie and Nutella milkshake, these Raspberry Nutella Smoothies are easy to make and so delicious. The chocolate covered raspberries make them even more decadent!
Do you like smoothies or milkshakes best? Hey hey, now you can have your cake and eat it too! As in, THIS is both smoothie AND milkshake. I wasn’t sure what I should call it, but since there is more smoothie in it (as observed from the PINK layers), I went with yup, you guessed it. Smoothies. 🙂
Valentines is around the corner, and I love the idea of surprising my sweetheart with one of these. It’s pretty simple, but yet interesting and delicious. Don’t even bother with the $5 Hallmark card. These will do just fine.
How to layer the smoothie:
- Make the chocolate covered raspberries. Put them in the refrigerator to set.
- Combine the ice cream and Nutella. Set aside in the freezer.
- Whip together the smoothie layer.
- Assemble – smoothie layer, milkshake layer, smoothie layer, topped with chocolate covered raspberries.
These are NOT just any ordinary smoothies. They are Raspberry Nutella Smoothies!
- Use frozen peaches and peach yogurt in the smoothie layer, and call it an Easter smoothie.
- Blend some pistachio ice cream (it’s green!) with frozen cherries in the smoothie layer, and call it a Christmas smoothie.
- Blend frozen blueberries in the smoothie layer and use plain vanilla ice cream, and call it a Patriotic smoothie.
So many options. Cheers, and happy everything!
