“Mom, can you make that orange frozen drink thing you made that one time? It was really good!”

Sure I can. It’s a Strawberry-Citrus Frappe, made a couple of years ago for a sweltering afternoon.

But today in the fruit bowl I see tangerines, and a Meyer lemon from our tree out back, and half a container of fresh raspberries. Let’s see what we can whip up with that.

A quick whirl in the blender, and yep, that’ll do, quite nicely.

I give you Tangerine Raspberry Citrus Cooler, for the win!

Tangerine Raspberry Citrus Cooler

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 serving

Tangerines, Meyer lemon juice and fresh raspberries whirl together into a frozen fruit slushy for an after-school or afternoon Tangerine Raspberry Citrus Cooler. Summer's coming!


  • 3 seedless tangerines, peeled and strings removed
  • 1 Meyer lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 (6-ounce) container fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 tablespoon-ish agave sweetener


  1. Place tangerine segments, lemon juice, raspberries, ice cubes and a squirt of agave into a blender container.
  2. Whirl at high speed until well blended. Taste and adjust for sweetness, adding just a hint more agave if you need it. Don't oversweeten.
  3. Serve in a glass with a pretty straw if you're a food blogger. If you're not a food blogger, serve with any straw you can find in the drawer! Don't stress.
  4. Serves 1.

And if you are not yet convinced of the deliciousness of the Tangerine Raspberry Citrus Cooler, my neighbors Leila and Judah Taub whipped it up today after they saw my blog post. The thermometer hit 99 degrees here by early afternoon, and you can see how happy they are to have it in hand!

I love raspberries! This is a perfect cool summer drink!

Ahhh! Definitely a winner…especially since I’m in the scorching temps we have in Phoenix. Ugh! This is so vibrant!

This looks so refreshing


Alisa Fleming June 20, 2016 at 9:16 pm

This is a genius flavor combination Dorothy! I absolutely love tangerine and it probably pairs with raspberries even better than orange.


Dorothy Reinhold June 20, 2016 at 9:45 pm

Thank you Alisa! It was soooooo good!


Chrisy @ Homemade Hooplah June 20, 2016 at 7:11 pm

I can’t tell you how badly I’d love one of these coolers to beat the Phoenix heat 😀 Love that it’s family friendly, too!

I totally understand. It was 99 degrees here today. We are fried.

This smoothie looks wonderful. It looks like you have an excellent blender.

What a great way to cool off this summer!

This looks delicious! Perfect afternoon refresher!

Thanks Jen! It is 10:30 a.m. here and already 99 degrees, so this is going into the blender again today.

Oh man. I know what I’ll be making this summer to beat this Florida heat!

Ahhh, I LOVE tangerines! The raspberry-tangerine combo in this cooler is calling my name!
