This raspberry lime and mint 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 – gimme all the iced cold citrus drinks, y’all! I love citrus and in the summer, I am all about lemons and limes. Ooh, especially limes.
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. And after a few sips? Ahhhh. This drink cools from you from inside out.
I try to use homemade almond milk or homemade cashew milk as the base for my smoothies, but sometimes it’s hard to DIY. You know, like when you come home from a run and want an icy cold blended drink pronto. That’s when I reach for Silk’s cashewmilk. I love the stuff – it’s super creamy and rich and it’s also gmo-free and carageenan-free so clearly, I’m a fan.
If you don’t want to use store-bought cashew milk, you can just add some water and a handful of cashews instead – it’s totally up to you! It may not be quite as creamy, but I’m sure it’ll be delicious too!
