Raspberry Ripple Mocktail + Raspberry Juice

I love raspberries. They're so packed with flavour and not too sweet with that distinctive tartness that balances them all on it's own. Thank you nature! Here are a couple of delicious raspberry drinks that taste divine and are a wonderful alternative to soft drinks. I brought the mocktails to a uni function and without telling people they were sugar free and healthy they went down a treat, results like that just don't lie. I know you'll enjoy them too!

Raspberry Juice
Makes 1 serve
1/2 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
2 cups filtered water
Stevia to taste (optional)
  • If using frozen raspberries allow to thaw
  • Blend ingredients
  • Strain as desired to remove seeds
  • Enjoy!
  • Keeps well in the fridge for 3 days
As you can see I don't really mind the seeds but I do try and make an effort for others who do. The overall result is just a bit more sophisticated and refined.
Bottle explanation: These were made for my peers at our assessment day, they were required to be artistic alliterations so these are Bridget Riley's Raspberry Ripples (aka Raspberry and Mint Mocktails)

Raspberry Ripple Mocktail
Makes approximately 3 litres
2 litres mineral water (if you're fine with sugar you could use lemonade)
Stevia to taste
1kg Raspberries (I used frozen)
Handful of fresh mint
  • Thaw raspberries
  • Wash and remove leaves of mint
  • Combine all ingredients in a blender
  • Blend until you reach a smooth consistency
  • Strain as desired to remove seeds
  • Enjoy!
  • Store in an airtight bottle to remain aerated
These taste way better than artificial soft drinks, if you're trying to kick the habit (or just like yummy drinks) give them a go!
Love and Smiles,
