A refreshing minty-citrus smoothie from the creators of the Ninja Blender, learn how to make at home.
Raspberry Mint Lemonade Smoothie, a Ninja Blender “Smoothies & Super Juices” Recipe, contains the highest citric acid content of any smoothie recipe listed on our site. In fact, high citric acid levels, as found in the Raspberry Mint Lemonade Smoothie, have been shown to reduce the rate of stone formation in people susceptible to kidney stones. And, it is just so refreshing on a hot summer’s day … I do declare!
What Is In The Raspberry Mint Lemonade Smoothie From Ninja Blender?
The Ninja Blender Raspberry Mint Lemonade Smoothie ingredients are raspberries, mint, club soda, lemonade, powdered sugar, and crushed ice.
Raspberries – Raspberries are a popular seasonal fruit that are actually a member of the rose family. They are packed with vitamin C and manganese and also provide several B vitamins, vitamin E, and vitamin K. Raspberries are very high in antioxidant plant compounds that protect against cell damage and can help reduce your risk of various chronic diseases.
Lemon Juice and Lemonade – Lemons are a sour citrus fruit that are packed with antioxidants and various other beneficial plan compounds. Just one lemon provides more than 50% of your recommended daily intake of cold and flu-busting vitamin C. Lemons are also known to aid weight loss, prevent kidney stones, and protect against anemia.
Club Soda – Club soda is carbon dioxide injected water that is both hydrating and fizzy, but without any calories. It contains very few nutrients, but is a much healthier alternative to traditional sugar-laden sodas.
Mint – Mint is well known for the minty cool sensation it provides and is a popular ingredient in a variety of drinks and dishes. It is rich in nutrients including vitamin A, iron, and manganese, although it is typically used only as a flavoring agent in small quantities. The menthol in mint has been shown to relieve indigestion and reduce Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Powdered Sugar – Powdered sugar contains an anti-caking agent, such as corn starch, to prevent clumping. It is similar to typical refined white sugar in calories and carbohydrates and, although occasionally marketed as such, is not a sugar substitute. Powdered sugar provides little, if any, additional health benefit.
- Place raspberries, mint, club soda, lemonade, powdered sugar, and crushed ice into a Ninja Blender and blend until a smooth consistency is achieved.
- Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the fridge to enjoy later.
- If you don’t have frozen fruit, or simply prefer to use fresh fruit (we totally get that), we recommend adding 1/2 cup of ice to chill your smoothie and give it a pleasing icy texture.
