smoothie bowl with fruit toppingsLooking to satisfy a sweet craving but don’t want to forfeit nutritious ingredients? Our easy smoothie bowls are the perfect start to the day or even a mid-day, hearty snack. We’ve created two recipes that include a variety of fruits and vegetables such as raspberries, cauliflower, broccoli and more. Plus, both recipes include our Primal Kitchen Vanilla Whey Protein Drink Mix for an added boost of protein.

Since these smoothie bowls also call for frozen fruits and vegetables the prep time is minimal. Using frozen fruits and vegetables will also make the smoothie bowls thick and spoonable. We’ve listed a variety of topping ideas to use as the finish touch but the sky’s the limit with toppings! Use your favorite nuts, seeds, fruit, or anything else you’d like.

How to make smoothie bowls

First you’ll want to gather al your ingredients together. For the pink smoothie you’ll start with cauliflower rice, raspberries and milk into a blender. If you’re looking to make the blue smoothie you’ll start with placing the broccoli, berries, and milk into the blender.

Then you’ll pour in the nut butter, flaxseed and Primal Kitchen whey powder. Blend on high until smooth. The mixture will be thick! Place the mixture in the freezer for 15 minutes or so while you prep your toppings.

Notes

Use any combination of berries you like. Strawberries, blackberries and raspberries have lower overall carbs than blueberries.

Using frozen fruits and veggies will help ensure your smoothie is thick and spoonable. Start with ½ cup of milk and add more if needed to help the smoothie blend.

Frozen steamed zucchini is also a great lower carb option to add in! 

I used full fat almond milk for this recipe but feel free to use any milk you’d like, or you could use water.

For an added protein/nutrition boost, add more protein powder or consider adding in some Primal Kitchen collagen protein as well!

The sky is the limit with toppings! Use your favorite nuts, seeds, fruit, or anything else you’d like.
