A lot of what I’ve been eating lately has been green. Green smoothies, avocados, Palak Paneer, all green. Now that I think about it, the wrap I made for lunch was a spinach wrap. Green again. So I wanted my smoothie bowl to be bright and rosy and not green. And that is how my Raspberry Delight was born.
I love raspberries and how they look so sweet, but are actually a little sour. I love using them because they create a brightness to my bowls that can be hard to achieve with other fruits. To cut that bitterness a little, I added strawberries to my base and it turned out great.
This bowl is considered to be more of a “nice cream” than a smoothie bowl. When you add frozen bananas to the mix (which i did for this one) it creates a thicker texture that more closely resembles ice cream, but is still dairy-free. I also skip the orange juice in my nice creams, and only do almond milk. All you need is a decent blender and you can stop buying all that Ben & Jerry’s! (I’m just kidding, never stop buying Ben & Jerry’s, it’s delicious.)

When I sent this picture to my mom, she couldn’t believe I ate the whole thing! But this was my lunch, and it held be over for the 8 hours until my work shift was over. The more you add on top of it, like almond butter and granola, the more filling it will be. And you can always make a smaller portion by just doing 1/3 cup of each ingredient. I usually use around half a cup for each ingredient, if i measure it at all.
