Beets & Berries Smoothie Bowl
The art of making a smoothie bowl is really quite simple. Choose your base (mine’s usually frozen bananas…goes well with everything-so keep lots ready to go in the freezer) add in other flavours you’d like (strawberries, mango, beets etc…) add a liquid if needed (coconut milk, almond milk etc..) and blend away.
Too much liquid will result in more of a smoothie and less of a smoothie bowl. You’ll get better at adjusting this as you go. Try less liquid first and add as needed.
I use a Vitamix, which is AMAZING to say the least. The Vitamix comes with a tamper to allow you to press down on the ingredients to help get the perfect blend.
Today’s bowl had beets, hence the amazing color. I first added about 1/3 cup coconut milk and approx. 1/2 a small organic beet (sliced) into the Vitamix to make sure the beet was fully pureed. I then added 1 frozen banana, handful of frozen strawberries and a few frozen raspberries and started blending. Use the tamper to make sure all ingredients are evenly blended & into the consistency you want. I also add my ‘add ins’ to blend at this time.
Scoop out into bowl and top with your fav goodies!
Toppers-any goodies you want to add to your bowl without blending
Some of my regular Toppers are berries, coconut, hemp seeds, chia, pumpkin seeds, walnuts- but add what you like. I try to get more bang for my buck so there’s always an added protein or fat somewhere in my smoothie bowls
Add ins- Often I’ll add powders to my smoothie bowls (or smoothies) to add nutrients.
Some of my regular Add ins:
Raw cacao powder, Camu Camu powder, Ashwagandha powder, Organic Maca, Organic Mushroom blend, Vanilla powder, Moringa, Spirulina, Collagen, Hemp Seeds, vegan or hemp protein, etc…
Go try a new blend! Enjoy your smoothie bowl
