This raspberry lime cooler is sweet, tangy and refreshing. It’s like drinking a sweet and sour margarita on an incredibly hot day, sans alcohol of course. It’s the perfect drink to quench your thirst.
When it’s sweltering hot outside, people tend to gravitate toward cold citrus drinks. Why citrus? Because acidic drinks make you salivate, which makes you feel more hydrated. At least, that’s my understanding. Interesting, right?
I came up with this drink after going for a run this past weekend. It was hot and humid and by the time I got home, I was insatiably thirsty. I drank a tall glass of water, but I wanted something else… and this raspberry lime cooler absolutely hit the spot. The combination of raspberries, lime and fresh mint is so energizing – it’s sweet, tart and cooling. I added a couple teaspoons of raw honey to make the drink a little sweeter. After sipping on this, I felt completely cool – inside and out.
I typically use homemade almond milk as the base for my smoothies, but it’s not always possible to DIY – like, when you come home from a run and want an icy cold blended drink pronto. When Silk asked me if I was interested in trying their Cashewmilk, I agreed – while it’s obviously not homemade, it is non-GMO and carageenan-free (something that’s hard to find when it comes to store-bought dairy-free milk). I only support products that I use myself on a regular basis and this cashewmilk is one of them. If you decide to go the store-bought route, here’s a coupon that you can use!
- 1 ½ cups cashew milk
- 1 ⅓ cups frozen raspberries (10 ounce package)
- 2 teaspoons honey, adjust to taste
- Juice of 1 lime
- Small handful fresh mint leaves
- Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth.
- Taste and add more honey if needed.
