Who’s up for a bright and cheery bowl of winter goodness??
ME! Smoothie bowls make the best breakfasts because they are quick and easy to prepare and you can pack so many wholesome ingredients into one little bowl. It’s a great way to pack in a healthy dose of nutrition early in the day.
For me, the toppers are always the best part. There are so many variations of toppings you can use, whether it’s fresh or frozen fruit, nut butter, seeds, and of course…granola!
By far my favorite granola is Purely Elizabeth. For this Berry Smoothie Bowl, I chose the Purely Elizabeth Chocolate Sea Salt Probiotic Granola. It’s loaded with little chocolate chunks and tastes delicious when paired with berries. Be sure to try it at your local Giant today! While you're there, you can save $1.00 on Purely Elizabeth Probiotic Granola and $.50 on Purely Elizabeth Oat Cups.
I am obsessed with Purely Elizabeth, not only because their granola tastes great, but because they use only the finest ingredients. This Chocolate Sea Salt Granola is made with low-glycemic coconut sugar and coconut oil. I love the flavor that the coconut oil adds.
And the real kicker is they have added a non-GMO strain of probiotics to help support a healthy immune and digestive system. How cool is that? It is certified gluten free, vegan, and non-GMO. The best part is it tastes great. Even my teens love eating this right out of the bag.
- frozen raspberries
- frozen banana
- pomegranate arils
- almond extract (optional)
- almond milk
Mix all ingredients except toppings in a high powered blender. Add the almond milk a little at a time and use the tamper on your blender to get all the frozen fruit blended. You don't want to add too much milk at once or it will be too thin.
Pour into a bowl and add toppings. Enjoy with a spoon!
It’s infinitely adaptable and quite forgiving. What makes a smoothie bowl different is that it is thick and can hold up those delicious toppings. To make it thick, you must use some frozen berries or frozen banana. You can add ice, but too much ice will water down the taste.
If you are looking to up your greens, you can add a handful of spinach or kale to this Smoothie Bowl.
Of course, the most important part is the toppings!
