“Berry” Good Smoothie Bowl

It’s winter, it’s cold, and all you read about these days is to warm up with oatmeal, hot chocolate, tea, coffee… and heavy dinners. All of that is pretty much natural instinct which isn’t always a bad thing, but there are days that I get sick of eating heavy meals. That oatmeal, or stew just isn’t going to cut it, and that’s when I bust the blender out of the cabinet and make this delicious (and surprisingly good for you) smoothie bowl. Who knew that you could sneak so many delicious and healthy thing into one morning (or lunch) bowl of ice cold goodness?! 😉 This really isn’t something that I made every day, but once a week I like to shake up my morning and make something a little more unexpected and that is where this comes in!

I stumbled upon this amazing mixture combo of frozen fruit at my grocery store, and the thought of this smoothie just hit looking at it. So I snatched it up, brought it home and turned it into cool deliciousness! This smoothie bowl has a little bit of everything in it including this Lightly Sweetened Granola, and really makes it a good way to start the morning. You can make any changes you need to but I strongly suggest you try it as is before you make any adjustments.

It was an amazing start to the day, but could easily be for lunch, or a post-workout meal. The protein powder helps if you’re working out, and want to maintain a healthy food balance (and need to refuel after exercising), but it’s not necessary to enjoy this. Do you have any go-to smoothie recipes that are a total must?!

  1. I do always feel good when I have lots of fruit at the start of the day – love that you have used frozen berries, so much easier and cheaper than fresh ones!

  2. I like how you top with cacao nibs. They are one of our favorite toppings for things but I rarely see other people using them. I am starting to crave summer-y fare again. The other day I had hot tea (something I rarely drink in the summer) AND a smoothie with breakfast 😀

  3. I love a good smoothie bowl! Foe some reason it just seems more delicious than a regular smoothie in a cup– plus, I love all the yummy toppings! Beautiful pink color too!

  4. I’ve been so tempted to try smoothie bowls because combine my love of smoothies with my love of yoghurt and granola. I really like this recipe and am excited to come back to it soon!

  5. This looks so fresh and delicious! Pinning now! Thanks so much for sharing at Inspiration Thursday. Hope to see you again tonight!

  6. Smoothies and smoothie bowls have bene my saving grace since I had my son. I love that this one has cherries in it. I’m in denial about cherry season being over. With good frozen cherries, though, it doesn’t have to be!
