What's your favourite fruit? My favourite fruit is the raspberry (has been my favourite since I was little). There is something about their sweet and tartness that feeds my cravings (you know those sour candy ones).
Smoothie bowls are a great refreshing option for the summer. It can make for a healthy breakfast or afternoon snack (when that sweet tooth has kicked in). If you like berries as much as I do it's also a great way to make use of Canadian berries when they are in season. I find the local berries always taste SO much better. Do you agree?
Secret tip: when making a smoothie bowl always use lots of frozen fruit. I find this gives the bowl a sorbet type of texture (almost like ice cream, but way healthier). It also ensures your toppings don't sink to the bottom right away.
Give this quick and easy recipe a try and enjoy it on a hot summer day!
3/4 cup frozen raspberries
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 cup almond milk (or any type of milk, option to use coconut water instead)
1/2 banana (can be fresh or frozen)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Option: include 1 scoop of protein powder
2 tbsp. hemp seeds (topping)
2 tbsp. flaked coconut (topping)
Handful fresh raspberries (topping)
Blend raspberries, blueberries, banana, vanilla, and almond milk together. You will have to blend for 1-2 minutes. Add more water or milk if it's way too thick (but keep in mind you want that thick sorbet consistency).
Pour or scoop into bowl and top with hemp seeds, coconut, and fresh berries. You can play around with the toppings and add anything you feel like.
This smoothie 'sorbet' bowl is packed with fibre, antioxidants, and healthy fats....and it has the added bonus of being berry delicious too!
Cheers to happy and healthy eating all summer long! :)
