Rapberry Banana Raisin Smoothie

I had a big bag of raisins in the fridge so I decided to throw some into my lunch smoothie to add a little sweetness.  I've done that before with dates, which are heavenly blended with fresh fruit, so I figured I'd get a similar result with the raisins.  Success!  This 5-minute meal was perfectly refreshing on a 95 degree day.

Raspberry Banana Raisin Smoothie
1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen raspberries
1/4 cup raisins
2 Tbl coconut milk (from a can)
4 ice cubes
enough water to blend smooth (maybe 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup)

Throw all of the above ingredients into a Vita-Mix or high powered blender, gradually adding only enough water to blend until smooth but still thick and icy.  Enjoy!
