Berry Smoothie Bowl

Hi Everyone,

The heat is still on and I have been on a major need for chilled foods.  Ohhh, ice cream how I want you.  My darn Husband bought mint chocolate chip ice cream and I am home alone.  That is a bad thing.  Being left alone with ice cream in the house?  Is that some kind of cruel joke?  I could easily stand at the kitchen counter and take spoonfuls straight from the carton.  But I’m strong, I don’t need to do that, instead I will feed my body with healthy ingredients that is just as refreshing and satisfying.  I am very happy with today’s recipe because it is so perfect for hot weather, it’s filling and tastes amazing!  I have for you my Berry Smoothie Bowl.

Berry Smoothie Bowl

This smoothie bowl, is light refreshing and naturally sweet.  It’s made with frozen strawberries, a fresh banana and unsweetened coconut milk.  Very simple ingredients.  The smoothie has a nice strawberry flavor with just a hint of banana.  I normally go with a frozen banana, but I used half of a fresh one.  If you never had unsweetened coconut milk, it doesn’t have a coconut flavor, but to me it is a little thicker then skim milk and it’s also only 45 calories a cup.

I topped my smoothie bowl with fresh blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries.  I used the remaining banana on top.  I don’t know what it is, but I really enjoy banana’s topped on my smoothie bowl.  I actually have been craving banana’s for weeks.  I never buy them though, because when I do, I forget I have them because they are in the cupboard.  Out of site, out of mind.  I think I have been craving them because I am lacking potassium.  I have been getting awful Charley Horses in the middle of the night.  That is the worse pain ever, well at least it seems that way at the time.  So I had to have banana’s in my smoothie today.

It seems smoothie bowls are one of the biggest raves right now.  I can see why.  You can fill your bowl with healthy good for you ingredients.  Just top with what you like.  I know I will be making more in the near future.

Have a great weekend!
