Raspberry Beet Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie booooowls!! Like eating ice cream for breakfast. Normal smoothie ingredients are blended with less liquid than usual, so you can eat it with a spoon. So delicious, and a nice alternative to a smoothie- sometimes I get tired of "drinking" my breakfast.
There's so many options for topping your smoothie bowl. My go-to is granola, hemp seeds, fresh berries and sliced banana. You can do whatever you like, though: oats, coconut, any seeds you like, any nuts, any fresh fruit! I once topped it with rice krispies when I was out of granola, and it was amazing too (like feeding my inner child). If you're interested in making your own granola for topping, I'm really liking Cinnamon Bun Granola from Oh She Glows right now.
The gorgeous pink color from the beets makes this a great Valentine's Day breakfast. Make it for that special person or treat yourself!
1 cup raw beet, peeled and chopped into small cubes (about 1 medium beet)
½ cup frozen raspberries
½ frozen banana
½ cup almond milk
1 tbsp chia seeds
Optional Toppings: sliced banana, fresh berries, granola, chia seeds, hemp seeds, slivered nuts, coconut.
Add all ingredients except toppings to a high-powered blender. Blend, using a spatula to stir if the blender sticks. It should be pretty thick. When smooth, pour into a bowl and top with whatever toppings you want!
