Creating smoothie bowls is an art form. It may seem intimidating to get creative with your bowl but trust the process. There are endless options for toppings that you can include from fresh fruit to superfoods and raw granola aka rawnola. I decided to experiment with this blueberry smoothie bowl and loved the outcome! You’ll definitely see more smoothie bowl recipes in the future.
Berry Smoothie Bowl
- 1. Smoothie Bowl
- 2 cups almond milk (or other preferred nut milk)
- 2 cups frozen blueberries
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 1 scoop raw vegan protein powder - I recommend Sunwarrior's Vanilla protein powder (optional)
- Toppings: rawnola, goji berries, chia seeds, sliced banana and blueberries
- 2. Rawnola
- 2 cups raw oats
- 1/3 cup sunflower seeds, soaked 8 hours
- 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds, soaked 8 hours
- 1 cup chopped dried fruit (any mix of dried cherries, blueberries or cranberries)
- 2/3 cup agave
- 1/2 cup pitted dates
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 vanilla bean
- Sea salt
- If you're making the rawnola as one of your smoothie bowl toppings, you'll want to be sure to make this first.
- To make the rawnola, first soak your sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds for about 8 hours.
- Mix the raw oats, seeds and chopped dried fruit together in a bowl.
- In a food processor, combine the agave, dates, coconut oil, vanilla bean and sea salt until smooth. Pour over dry ingredients and mix them well.
- Dehydrate the rawnola at 105 degrees Fahrenheit for about 12 hours. Once ready, break up the rawnola into pieces. Refrigerate until ready to use.
- To make the smoothie bowl, blend all ingredients until smooth. The smoothie should be quite thick, so if needed, you may need to add more frozen blueberries until you reach your desired consistency.
- Pour in a bowl and decorate with your toppings. Enjoy!
