This pink raspberry smoothie bowl is a delicious, healthy way to start the day or for an any-time treat.
Anyone that has followed me on social media for any significant amount of time will know that I am absolutely smoothie bowl obsessed. They are ‘my thing’. Not only am I absolutely obsessed with them but also smoothie bowls helped to build my community and enabled me to share more and more recipes with you now through this blog and my social media accounts.
Why I love smoothies?
What I love about smoothie bowls could fit into an entire blog post of its own so I’ll try to keep things short & simple here. Smoothie bowls enable you to get a healthy meal, while also feeling like you’re treating yourself. By using a mixture of frozen elements, you’re able to create this gorgeous thick mixture that is a ‘nice cream’ texture.
Yes, there is a debate that smoothie bowls aren’t ‘as healthy’ as people like to think. This is because of the naturally occurring sugars within the fruit that can make this a ‘high sugar’ treat. However, it’s important to note that this is from the naturally occurring sugars within the fruit! For me, it has always been about balance.
I live by the 80/20 rule. 80 percent on the time I like to eat a healthy, balanced diet, and the other 20 percent I’ll eat whatever I want.
To make things even easier. I like to pop a whole bunch of different fruits into the freezer after every shop I do. That way I always have things I can grab to make a smoothie bowl at any given time.
Smoothie bowls can be both healthy and a treat
This pink raspberry smoothie bowl is definitely both. Plus – depending on what your nutritional needs are then you can feel free to swap out toppings and fillings.
To begin with, you just need some bananas and raspberries. I love using frozen ones but fresh ones would do too. Then, add some yogurt and a dash of milk and the smoothie is ready. For extra flowery flavor, add some rose water.
Simply blend the banana, raspberries, yogurt, rose water, and milk, and you are left with a thick more-ish pink raspberry smoothie bowl that you can then top with your toppings of choice.
I personally love to decorate my smoothie bowls and get kick out of making these bowls as beautiful as they are delicious. Does anyone else feel the same way?
Sometimes I just add some dragon fruit balls and a sprinkle of shredded coconut. And sometimes, if I am feeling more indulgent, I add some homemade chocolate hearts and even an occasional extra treat.
