Blueberry-Blackberry Smoothie Bowl

If you spend any time on Facebook or Instagram or Pinterest and like as many food-related pages as I do, I’m sure you’ve seen smoothie bowls floating around. I was kinda confused by them until I made my own. I like that smoothies are portable and easy to carry around but for a bowl of smoothie, you actually have to sit down and eat. However, eating a smoothie topped with all kinds of goodies is pretty much the breakfast equivalent of eating a sundae. Maybe instead of a smoothie bowl, we should call them breakfast sundaes. I’ve come up with a few other combinations for these that I want to try so stay tuned!

This recipe makes one large smoothie bowl.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana (I use frozen for a thicker smoothie and to use up bananas, but fresh works too!)
  • 1/4 cup blueberry-blackberry probiotic yogurt
  • 3/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2/3 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh blackberries
  • 2 tbsp whole unsalted almonds
  • 1 tbsp unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries
  1. Break the banana into 2 or 3 pieces and place in the blender. Add the yogurt, frozen blueberries, and skim milk.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the smoothie into a medium-sized cereal bowl. Use a rubber spatula to get all the good stuff from the sides and bottom of the blender.
  4. Top your bowl with the fresh blackberries, almonds, sunflower seeds and dried cranberries.
