Loaded with protein and packed with flavor, this RASPBERRY ALMOND SMOOTHIE BOWL is s quick and easy breakfast is just as healthy as it is delicious!
A couple years ago when my family and I went out for brunch, I tried a smoothie bowl for the first time. I figured it would be a healthier choice, instead of a heavy, calorie-dense breakfast. It was amazing! Cool and creamy, but with lots of texture, crunch and flavor. When I had that first smoothie bowl, I decided right away, that I MUST make these at home!
Smoothie bowls can be made with a multitude of ingredients. Much like a regular smoothie, it starts with a base of yogurt and milk. However, unlike the smoothie that you drink, a smoothie bowl will be much thicker and have more texture, therefore requiring you to eat it with a spoon.
You can really go nuts with your smoothie bowl ingredients – literally! I love adding raw, whole almonds, which add a wonderful crunch and texture. I also like using almond milk for extra protein and calcium. Chia seeds are a wonderful addition as well. This super-food offers protein, magnesium and is a good source of dietary fiber.
Smoothie bowls are a fantastic breakfast option. Not only are they super-quick to whip up on busy mornings, but it has loads of protein and fiber, so it will help keep you fuller for longer! Forget those carb and sugar bombs, which will leave you feeling sleepy and hungry in a hour. Start your day with this healthy, delicious breakfast option!
I love using raspberries in this smoothie bowl – feel free to use either fresh or frozen. You can also substitute strawberries, blueberries or blackberries, too!
Here’s the quick, healthy and delicious recipe for my Raspberry Almond Smoothie Bowl:
- 1 c. low-fat Greek yogurt, vanilla flavor
- 2/3 c. almond milk
- 1 c. fresh or frozen raspberries
- 1/4 c. whole, raw almonds
- 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 packet, stevia sweetener (or your choice of sweetener)
- additional fresh raspberries
- additional chia seeds
- chopped almonds
- In a blender, add the yogurt, milk, raspberries, almonds, chia seeds and sweetener. Blend until completely combined. Pour into bowl, and top with your desired toppings. Enjoy right away.
I hope you get the chance to enjoy this fresh, delicious smoothie bowl. These are perfect, especially in the spring and summer when a cool, creamy and delicious breakfast is the way you want to start your day. Enjoy! ~Erin
