Spring Fling: Berry Almond Smoothie Bowl

Start your day with a refreshing smoothie bowl filled with raspberries and almonds, and topped with blueberries, coconut, and more almonds.  The best way to start the day!

Berry Almond Smoothie Bowl

I've been obsessed with Acai and Smoothie (MGG calls them smoodie) bowls for about 6 months now.  I've always loved smoothies and have quite a few recipes on this blog, but there is something so naughty about putting it in a big bowl and adding all the toppings.  It's like a decadent treat that is so much tastier than oatmeal or cereal.   

This is a my Berry Almond Smoothie Bowl.  It's filled with my favorite berry, raspberries with an additional of some almonds for a protein burst and some cinnamon for a little warmth.  This is combined with a Greek yogurt, banana, and milk base to create the "bowl", then it's topped with sweet blueberries, coconut flakes, and a sprinkle of sliced almonds.  Heaven in a bowl!


What Ingredients do I need?

  • frozen raspberries
  • 1 large banana
  • Greek yogurt
  • 2% milk
  • sliced almonds
  • ground cinnamon
  • vanilla extract
  • fresh blueberries
  • unsweetened coconut flakes

Substitutions and Variations

  • Top with chocolate chunks.
  • Change up the toppings: strawberries or blackberries are great, or add some sliced bananas.
  • Granola would make a great topping.
  • Leave the almonds out of the smoothie and the topping for a nut free dish.
  • Use almond milk or soy milk if you prefer.

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Always use frozen raspberries to get the slushy thick smoothie.
  • Frozen bananas will help, but are not necessary.
  • If your smoothie comes out to thin you can add some ice cubes and blend that in to thicken it up, or add a little more yogurt.
  • Make sure to use a powerful blender.
