A couple weeks ago I posted this recipe on Instagram after I whipped it up for a mid-day snack. I later realized that I should probably go ahead and just post it on the blog for everyone.
I really do love a good smoothie bowl. They are incredibly satisfying and a fun way to incorporate a lot of nutrients in to one dish.
Although a lot of bowls use Acai as the base I decided to switch things up and make one with raspberry. I really love how tart raspberries are and they are fairly low in sugar. For a mid-day snack I prefer to not have a major sugar crash.
I always consider smoothie bowl recipes to be a template. You can easily switch out ingredients and toppings for your favorite items.
My favorite new addition though is that Dr. Cowan’s Beet Powder. It is a combination of THREE different beets – Detroit Red, Chiogga and Golden. It is incredibly sweet and highly nutritious. One teaspoon of this stuff is a large serving of vegetables. If you are looking to add some more nutrients to your dishes I highly recommend these powders! P.S – this is the same powder I use in my Chocolate Beet Cup recipe.
So next time you have that mid-day ice cream craving (surely I am not the only one) I would recommend throwing together a nutritious smoothie bowl instead!
- 1.5 cup frozen raspberries
- ½ frozen banana
- ½ cup coconut milk
- ½ tsp camu camu (optional)
- 2 Tbsp collagen protein (or protein of choice)
- 1 Tbsp MCT oil (optional)
- 1 tsp Dr. Cowan’s Three-Beet Powder
- 3-4 cubes of ice
- Cacao nibs
- Chia seeds
- A little more beet powder
- Add all of the smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth but still thick. Top with your favorite bowl toppings or the ones listed above.
